Well, my respect level for Shatner just dropped to a new all-time low.
I respect George for having the courage to never stop being who he is after what this world did to him, especially the internment in WWII.
Respect isn't granted. It's earned. IMO, Shatner hasn't done squat to earn the respect he's apparently insisting he's given with the "Mister" crap. If you work with someone for three years and six movies decades ago, and still to this day wish that they call you "Mister"? Can we say ego?
