We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Don Knotts dead... Sunday, February 26, 2006

Comedic actor Don Knotts, 81, passed on Friday evening due to pulmonary and respiratory problems. Knotts, best known for his 5 time Emmy winning roll as Deputy Barney Fife on the long running comedy of the '60s, "The Andy Griffith Show," was still popular and his beloved character will remain in reruns indefinitely.

While I wasn't around when the show originally aired, generations of people, particularly in the south grew up remembering Fife, Sheriff Taylor and all the other characters and actors for that matter, only a few of which are still around. Most of us can still whistle the tune to the show.
