Leslie Nielsen, RIP -- November 28, 2010

I was sad to learn that Leslie Nielsen had died. Even though F. Scott Fitzgerald said "There are no second acts in American lives," Leslie Nielsen managed to have a second act. He started out playing good guys and bad guys in movies like Fantastic Planet and many, many television shows. In 1980, he played a doctor in Airplane! and his career moved towards comedy with lots of slapstick. Dracula, Dead and Loving It is a particular family favorite. Surely he brought happiness to lots of people. And don't call me Shirley.
