  1. Oh no! He was such a great character and Night Court so brilliant. I know everyone is talking about Matthew Perry and although sad, I hate Friends and it didn’t really upset me. So thanks for letting us know about another unfortunate death David. Actually great that someone that talk made it to 80 because it is a fact that taller people tend to die much sooner than others.
    Sad that so many people from Night Court have died too.
