    If anyone here has not yet seen A FACE IN THE CROWD go out and get it and watch it. Andy Griffith as you have never seen him before and a movie that is old but could have been made today.

    I remember watching him as the Sheriff on his own show every week. He will be missed.

    Never heard anyone ever say anything bad about the man, apparently he was just as decent off screen as he was on.
    RIP Andy

    As a Baby Boomer it is sad to realize all your tv stars and musicians are starting to ride off into the sunset.

    There are only two Beatles now. The majority of the characters on Andy Griffith show have riden off on their steeds. Countless other stars and musicians have left into that final sunset.

    I have always felt life is like a giant conveyor belt we are on. You start out and there are just an ocean of people in front of you. As you age you realize that many people you knew in person or from the silver screen are starting to fall off at the end of the conveyor belt.

    Everybody has to ride off the end of the conveyor belt eventually. But still sad to see someone like Sheriff Andy ride off.

    When I think of Andy Griffith, this is what I think of:

    No Time For Sergeants : Free Download & Streaming : Internet Archive

    I really enjoyed this.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    My children are smitten.. They grew up on Mayberry and later were fans of Matlock.

    You know there is something very sweet about wholesome and we just don't have enough of that anymore.

    I liked Matlock alot and the format always showcased rising young talent... but I loved Mayberry and the whole ensemble.
