    RIP, Paul.
    Dang - I'd have expected him to be older with a career going back that far.

    50+ years of increasing success in the business isn't bad-- heck, I can just remember OCCASIONAL WIFE, practically at the dawn of my consciousness.
    It would appear that PJW was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time with the right instincts.

    Sad to hear about his death.
    Because I so enjoy American sitcoms.
