Normally I don’t give props to non-Republicans (David Waddell is going to run on the Constitutional ticket against Kay Hagan*), but I will stretch a rule because, well, he wrote his resignation letter in Klingon:
An Indian Trail councilman decided to boldly go where no politician has gone before – and tendered his resignation this week in the Klingon language.
Apparently David Waddell no longer wanted to live long and prosper on the board.
In an interview Thursday, Waddell said his resignation letter to Mayor Michael Alvarez was written in Klingon, the language of a proud warrior race in the “Star Trek” TV shows and movies, as an inside joke. But in case the mayor wasn’t up to speed with his Klingon, Waddell included a translation using Bing.com.
Klingon text at the link: my keyboard isn’t set up for it and no, I don’t speak that particular language. Suffice it to say that Waddell was, well, maybe not the most diplomatic in his leave-taking…
*Apparently nobody ever told him that only a fool fights in a burning house.
…Damn, but I miss John M. Ford. He was a hell of a guy. He didn’t come up with that line, but he’s who I think of when I think of Klingons.
