    R. I. P. Peter Falk

    I just learned that one of my favorite actors of all time--Peter Falk--has died at the age of 84.
    May you rest in peace Mr. Falk. The enjoyment you provided to myself and millions of others around the world with your portrayal of Columbo will never be forgotten nor surpassed.
    Thank You!

    I was very sad when I read this in the news today. A quality actor in a quality show. I think I've seen every one of the Columbo films.

    He will be greatly missed. He gave an enjoyable performance in every role he took on. A marvelous comedian and a dedicated serious actor with a warm personality. We shall not see his like again!

    I'll never forget all his stellar performances as 'Columbo' ... including that oft used false exit line "just one more thing".

    Lots of great actors have died this year ... including another favorite of mine, James Arness.

    It does seem the clock is ticking away these days. LIke Lars said many of the old standards actors & musicians have passed with in the last year or so, May They Rest In Peace

    I'm with Krummhorn - Columbo was a great series while it lasted........
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
