In my comments here, I originally joked that this guy was probably in a hurry to get to his job as a marriage counselor. But–what do I know?

I’ve been bombarded by e-mails and Facebook comments that this man is obviously Captain James T. Kirk and that he’s rushing back to the starship Enterprise.

So I wrote a Star Trek joke–without realizing it? Okay. The guy does kinda look like Kirk. But–oh, uh, last night when I first posted this was William Shatner’s 80’s birthday?

Okay. I bow to the obvious. I’m more brilliant than I thought. This is a Star Trek joke!
