Stereotypes, schmereotypes

With one branch of the newly-split and re-imagined Star Trek: The Tou--er, Exhibition making its first real stop-to-stop move, the major old-guard Detroit Free Press newspaper has an excellent piece up about not only the attraction's arrival but metro Detroit's main fan group and their opinion of it.

Best of all, the whole tone of it re: members of the 21-year-old USS Intrepid club is very, well, normal. Some would even say respectful:

They do not live in their mothers’ basements.

Most, in fact, have basements of their own.

One is a neurosurgical nurse, another an administrative assistant and another a parts assembler. ...

This, from mainstream media? Local? Maybe it is the start of a new era ...
