So long Jim Nabors

Just saw that the great "Andy Griffith" and "Gomer Pyle" actor passed away today. I always enjoyed watching him, from the time I was a little kid to the present day. He also should be remembered as a pioneer for gay marriage. He'll be missed.

A native of Alabama, Nabors also recorded more than two dozen albums with a rich, operatic baritone voice that surprised those who were used to hearing Nabors exclaim "Gawwwleee!" with a Southern twang on television.

...  In January 2013, Nabors exchanged wedding vows with Stan Cadwallader, his partner of almost four decades, before a judge in a Seattle hotel room. Nabors met Cadwallader, a former firefighter in Honolulu, in 1975.

Farewell Andy Griffith

The beloved TV star Andy Griffith has passed away at age 86. Before he was Sheriff Andy Taylor on "The Andy Griffith Show," the actor made a name for himself with his folksy stand-up comedy routines. Here is one of his best-known, featuring illustrations by cartoonist Jack Davis.
