A true comedy genius has passed away. Don Knotts, that lovable oaf we all knew as Barney Fife, died Friday at the age of 81. He won five Emmy awards for the role of the doofy deputy of Mayberry. He also made several movies, the best of which, in my opinion, was "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken". There will never be another like him. God bless, Barney.

Also passing from the entertainment scene today was actor Darren McGavin at age 83. He portrayed the original "Kolchak: Night Stalker" as well as the gruff father of the hit holiday movie "A Christmas Story". And for those who may remember, he portrayed Candice Bergen's father on "Murphy Brown". All memorable roles.
