It wasn’t true!

Scotty Is Recovering
We reported yesterday that James Doohan, who played Scotty on STAR TREK, had slipped into a coma. Now comes word from Doohan’s agent, “James has been a client of mine for almost 30 years. For an 82-year-old man who spent 13 weeks in bed recuperating from pneumonia, he’s doing damn well.”
In other words, there was no coma. His agent added, “He’s not ready to do any personal appearances yet, but he is home, and he is doing rehabilitation. … A lot of the stuff he’s going through now are a result of his injuries from World War II.” Doohan also suffers from Parkinson’s disease and diabetes.
