Don Knotts (1924-2006)

Don Knotts died Friday night in Beverly Hills of pulmonary and respiratory complications. He was 81.

The actor, who played landlord Mr. Furley on TV's Three's Company, won five Emmys in the 1960s for his portrayal of deputy Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show.

Former costar Andy Griffith was at Knotts's bedside when he died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, as were his third wife, Francie, and his children, Thomas and Karen.

I always liked Don.

(Unnecessary political tie-in. This too.)
