Goodbye Ronnie Barker

I had intended to write a long and heartfelt eulogy of British comedian Ronnie Barker who died Monday night. Along with Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Spike Milligan Barker was another of my pantheon of heroes cut down in the last decade and a half, less a result of their own lives as of my being at that awkward age where professional athletes and many police officers are younger than me but politicians and the Rolling Stones are not. However, Gerard Cosloy over at Can't Stop The Bleeding does a much shorter and eloquent version than I ever could here.

Goodnight, Norman Stanley Fletcher.

It's good night from me, and it's good night from him. Good Night Ronnie.
