  • Wow! I'm surprised he was still alive. I liked him on Barney Miller.

    JazzBill, I didn't know he was still alive, either.  I read that not one but several rumors of his death circulated in years past.  I liked him on "Barney Miller,", too.  In fact, it's one of the few '70s shows I still watch if it happens to come on.

    It's been a rough month for famous people. In the last month we lost, Meadowlark Lemon, Natalie Cole, Wayne Rogers, Pat Harrington, David Bowie, Dan Haggerty Glen Frey and Abe Virgoda. And Keith Richards lives on, go figure.

    You're right, we have lost a lot of famous people this month.  As for Keith Richards, I guess that fall from the coconut tree some years ago only made him tougher.  I think he's going to be a father again, too.
