Obit: Don Knotts

Good lord! Don Knotts died yesterday!

What a bummer. Yet another part of Kid Various' childhood fades into the past. The Kid loved The Ghost and Mr. Chicken. Do kids today even know of Knott's genius?

Talk about an icon. He was one of those rare comic actors who know their strengths and stick with it. Hardly anyone played the confused doofus better than him.

And Andy Griffith was with him at the end. What's up with that? For some reason Kid Various finds that all kinds of creepy.

[Don] Don't grieve - Andy. The needs of the many...outweigh...
[Andy] ...The needs of the few.
[Don] Or the one. I am...and always shall be...your friend.
[Andy] No!
Vaya Condios my friend!

In other news, Firefox is telling us that Abe Vigoda is still alive.
