RIP: Dick Van Patton

CATAGORIES: REST IN PEACE — FloridaBill @ 1:51 pm

I guess 86 was enough? Note that in this link, they claim (unless they fixed it) that Eight is Enough ran from 1877 to 1981… they beat out Gunsmoke and the Simpsons combined!

I will be in Cali for the remainder of the week attending a mediation in LA.

Just damn. RIP Mr. Nimoy. You created a great character that will live a very long time and provide properity for many. Especially Zachary Quinto.
