The Different Strokes star has died from head injuries sustained in a fall.

And then there was Todd.

    Y’know, until the you get the chance to walk in the shoes of Coleman, Plato and Bridges, perhaps you’re better keeping such witticisms to yourself.

    … and don’t forget Danny (Sam) Cooksey, even if he might prefer it.

    RIP Gary, you made me laugh.

    Horatio –

    Who would want to be in Bridges’ shoes?

    The nutcase went on a drug crazed rampage and killed people and now he’s out soft peddling an autobiography and concocting some BS story that Dana Plato gave him oral sex.

    My ex-roommate (who went to jail for furnishing drugs to Carroll O’Connor’s son) and Todd were in rehab together and I can assure you from the stories he told me that Bridges is not someone you would want as your sponsor.

    He was part of my TV education and for that I thank him, he took the butt of a lot of jokes with grace. My sympathies to his family and friends.

    Besides, Todd Bridges might come to your house and start shooting the place up.

    Or snort coke through your comics.

    Be careful, is what I’m saying.

    And now we have lost Dennis Hopper.

    What’s that old saying, “death comes in threes”?

    Curious why this is here. No comics connection that I can see. He was a sitcom star.
