Well yeah I guess if he continues to bring in the fans they'd be happy. Kind of sad that some folks care more about who the bigger names are than who are the nicer people.(although this doesn't apply if they don't know about the way Shatner acts at these things, but there are a lot of stories out there)
I think who is going to die next comes into it as well. I know that factor has me ebay'ing some crap to buy tickets to see Shatner.
