George Takei to talk Saturday, kicking off new L.A. museum exhibition on his life

George Takei has a lot to say these days.

The actor and activist’s Twitter account, where he has 2.23 million followers, is flooded with comments about President Trump, healthcare reform, jobs, LGBT rights and other issues of the day.

On Saturday, Takei will do more talking – this time in person, at a news conference at the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo. The event will kick off the museum’s exhibition “New Frontiers: The Many Worlds of George Takei,” which The Times previewed in November and which opens to the public Sunday.

The exhibition features Takei’s collection of personal ephemera that he donated to the museum. It includes family photographs and artworks, old TV scripts, Takei’s Mr. Sulu costume from “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country” – not to mention a letter from director Francis Ford Coppola who, Takei says, owes him $500 from when they were students at UCLA. The exhibition is the first in a series that the museum plans to present dealing with stereotypes of Asians and Asian Americans in the media.

Billionaire behind Rainforest Cafe, Bubba Gump's: 'We can't afford' to give SF workers healthcare

Billionaire Tilman Fertitta, sole owner of Landry's Inc., a corporation responsible for a number of recognizable chain restaurants including Claim Jumper, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Rainforest Cafe, and McCormick & Schmick's Seafood & Steaks, believes that San Francisco shouldn't mandate its restaurants to pay for city workers' healthcare.

In "Billion Dollar Buyer," a CNBC show in which the restaurateur stars, Fertitta says his businesses have to charge more for the same menu items because San Francisco requires some types of businesses to contribute to their workers' healthcare coverage.

"All these states now are doing their own mandates," Fertitta says. "Why should the city of San Francisco be able to do absolutely whatever they want to do?"
