Web generally avoids "Beam up" metaphors on Star Trek actor's death

Don't know if it shows, but I was going for an onionesque headline here as the web generally seems to avoid a bad risk of "trite metaphor"-itis to describe the death of James Doohan, the actor who beamed up William Shatner when Doohan played Star Trek chief engineer "Scotty".

[Update: It's getting worse]
