More 7 of 9

I posted below that seven of my nine city council endorsements made the primary cut. I entitled that post "7 of 9".

I had completely forgotten that 7 of 9 is also the name of Jeri Ryan's character on Star Trek: Voyager. That is, of course, until a friend of mine reminded me about it.

I don't know how I could have forgotten an image like the one of Jeri Ryan below.

Plus, Jeri Ryan was on Star Trek - one of the most awesome franchises in the history of television.

And I forgot about the one and only Jeri Ryan as 7 of 9.

I am losing nerd cred. I really, really am.

jIH Daq latlh. (For the non-nerds who read this blog, that is "I need to watch more television" in Klingon.)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go back to fantasizing about being assimilated by Jeri Ryan.

UPDATE @ 6:12 p.m.
Speaking of Jeri Ryan as 7 of 9, I found this video on-line.

City of Detroit unions are right...to demand that Mayor Bing make budget cuts at the top...then go back to the unions after demonstrating his resolve to cut the budget.

The Mayor should make $100,000 a year, until the budget is balanced for good...and no one in city government should make more....including department heads and staff members.

Detroit has less than 900,000 residents, but nine, count them 9 budgeted council members, plus staff - Detroit doesn't need but five (5) to seven (7) council members and a reduced staffing level. Council members should make only $60,000. (that's more than a police officer), and the $697,000 office budget, per council member, should be cut in half, until Detroit is up and running in budget black, Detroit's neighborhoods are revitalized and the schools and streets are safe to walk and live on.
Every council candidate should pledge to reduce the number of council members and their staff budgets to get edorsements.

Then Mayor Bing would deserve to have public support for union concessions...
