LeVar Burton - internet and nerd hero, known for the miniseries Roots, Geordi La Forge on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Troy's hero on Community, and as the host of 80s/90s staple Reading Rainbow - was crying today. Why? Because of YOU, internet.
Burton & Co. launched a Kickstarter the other day to bring Reading Rainbow back as an online program - and within a day, they had raised their goal of ONE MILLION DOLLARS. As of now, they're at about $2.5 million.
