It’s sad, but we knew it was coming. I’m glad his suffering is finally over.

I’m surprised I didn’t catch that he was Morrie and Teitleman both. Thought I knew all crossover cast there.


The Irish Rover was the song that got him an invitation to being a full member of the Dubliners.

Robert Guillaume died.

RIP Benson.

He was great in Soap. Benson (the show) suffered from problems that had nothing to do with Guillaume’s acting. He shined in Sports Night despite Aaron Sorkin (sorry I can’t stand him).

From Soap:

Doorbell

Benson “You want me to get that?”

As a person of color, I liked Benson because he went from being a domestic servant to being the Lt Governor.

As implausible as that is in real life, representations of possible economic upward mobility were as important to the Black community as they were rare.

I spent many hours drunkenly dancing to these guys around the pool tables at the Carlisle Castle.

One of our best. A significant influence on later punk guitar, IMO.

I was confused for a second.

I know Carlisle Castle well, but I don’t remember any pool tables.

Maybe the army had hidden them when I was there :wink:
