    Okay, this is a hard one, right up there with when John Candy passed away for me.

    I'm actually crying right now, I can't remember the last time the passing of a celebrity made me cry.

    "It's the same old story. Boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girls dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day."

    "Goodyear?"

    "No, the worst."


    RIP

    From Police Squad...


    Thug...

    "I wanna talk to you about your little key store."


    Frank...

    "What about my little keester?"


    Ed...

    "Sargent's take her away and book her."


    Frank (shaking the hands of the two officers)...

    "Sargent Takeraway, Sargent Booker."

    I wasn't referring to their lifespans, I was comparing them because I loved them both equally as actors and as comedians.

    From that same episode:


    Who are you and how did you get in here?

    I'm the locksmith and I'm the locksmith.

    I do wish John had stuck around longer than he did but your right that Leslie had a long and hopefully full filling career and life.

    It's of course awful learning about the passing of any great celebrity but there are some that you personally have followed and are a big fan of that just seems to hit you harder because of the emotional connection you've made with them.


    Personally Leslie's films used to cheer me up if I was feeling down about something, his Frank Drebin never ceased to make me laugh.

    Leslie Nielsen made me laugh more then anyone who ever lived.

    Police Squad the tv show and the movies are as funny as anything could possibly be except for Airplane. He was perfect in that and I think it was the funniest movie ever created.


    I miss him.

    He'll be missed. He was a great comic talent.
