RIP Gary Coleman

A sad ending to a sad story. (Could anyone have guessed back in 1978 that Conrad Bain would outlive two-thirds of his TV children?) Coleman’s “Arnold” was probably my first favorite television character–live action, anyway–and even watching him years later in endless syndication he brought a smile to my face. Rest in peace, Gary. Hopefully wherever you are they’ve stopped giving you grief about being a damned security guard.

Maybe my fellow Gen-Xers will disagree, but there’s something about seeing both Coleman and Corey Haim die so close together that makes me feel so, I dunno, mortal.
