The Late, Great Andy Griffith

Was there a TV show greater than The Andy Griffith Show? Not many, that's for sure. Boy howdy, I love Andy Griffith! He had one of the great Southern accents, with which he could deliver any moral sentiment as if it were coming from a deep well of archaic wisdom; our agreement was a necessity. Of course, that has a dark side, too, which he portrayed in his obverse role as Larry Rhodes in A Face in the Crowd (see clip). The actor died this morning at age 86.
