And we remember....

Thumbnail image for wisemanl.jpg I don't know about you but I found last night's Emmy telecast pretty boring. This is strange for me since usually I love award shows. Not surprising, though, was that my favorite part did not disappoint--the "In Memoriam" segment. With Sarah MacClahlan singing her hit, "I will Remember You," the video montage paid tribute to television stars who had passed this year.

BILLY MAYS! For sheer volume alone he should have been included.

And what about Majel Barrett?

And I should have added: what about Mollie Sugden and Wendy Richard? Hasn't PBS shown "Are You Being Served?" in reruns for over 20 years?

Jack Narz - he might have logged more TV time than any of them
