Poor Jason Bourne. He’s been running for what seems like decades. I’m tired just thinking about it, and this latest movie in the franchise is just as fatiguing.

One family, three generations, timeless treasures. The Stark Museum of Art presents a new exhibit titled Collecting Conversations opening Saturday, Aug. 6, at 9 a.m.

Everyone collects something. People buy keepsakes to remind them of their travels. They keep treasures to pass down through their families. Some seek objects that can teach them about the world. Others collect items that are valuable, beautiful, rare or quirky. Such “stuff” tells stories, sometimes about the objects, sometimes about the collector and often about both.

A quick polling of my pals outside the theater at the conclusion of this latest Star Trek installment revealed that the winner and still champion is the 1982 “Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan.” It’s hard to beat Ricardo Montalban spewing, “… I spit my last breath at thee.” But that was then and this is now, and one of the best things this franchise has going for it is the reboot that gave Trekkes a whole new — and yes, younger — cast to enjoy.
