Farewell to a Truly Great Entertainer

Don Knotts passed away on Saturday, and we lost one of the greatest comedians of all time. Call me old fashioned, but I think the Andy Grittith Show is and remains an example of truly great television. Although I'm under thirty, I still regularly watch episodes of it on public television.

Don Knotts had the ability to make people laugh without the crutch of crude humor. Few comedians today can do that. We will miss him.
