Little Buddy

Bob Denver passed away this past Friday. Better known as Gilligan of Gilligan's Island, Bob never mounted a serious threat in his show business career with any of his other endeavors. In fact, I can't think of one other thing he did or tried. Such is the curse, or success, that comes with show business.

Our own careers aren't much different. What will be remembered for? How will we be measured? Who'll remember us in ten or twenty years?

Apart from salvific issues, I hope Bob died content with his work. Fans of Gilligan's Island always had a smile when he saved the day without really knowing what he did. As entertainment today devolves into the promotion of morally objectionable material, in the context of the history of entertainment the memory of Gilligan's Island will always be warmly remembered by the Baby Boomers.

Was Chief Justice William Rhenquist a fan of Gilligan's Island?
