VULCANS IN ALABAMA
Terry Oglesby provides all sorts of info on the romantic history of Vulcan. Alas, not the home planet of Mr. Spock (where, presumably they don’t have romance, seeing how it’s illogical, although they do have Pon Far) but rather the World’s Largest Cast Iron Statue. I must say, it’s much more impressive than the second most important statue in Alabama, the Boll Weevil Monument in Enterprise, the “only monument in the world to a pest“. Indeed, for those of you studying for your SATs, remember this one: Vulcan Statue is to Boll Weevil Monument as Halle Berry is to Destiny Stahl.
The more astute among you will note that both involve Trek names–Vulcan and Enterprise. Maybe Gene Roddenberry deserves posthumous induction into the Axis of Weevil?
