Rest in Peace, Mr Drummond.


Conrad Bain, a veteran stage and film actor who became a star in middle age as the kindly white adoptive father of two young African-American brothers in the TV sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes," has died.

Bain died Monday of natural causes in his hometown of Livermore, Calif., according to his daughter, Jennifer Bain. He was 89.

He was a great "foil" for the leads in many series.
So many of the actors that were a part of my early life are leaving us.
RIP.

I promise to be duly reverent when the time comes for Queen Elizabeth II, Betty White, Dolly Parton, Chuck Berry, Jackie Mason, and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Well hey, he really tried. Did your parents ever get Nancy Reagan to come chat with you about the dangers of drugs in a Very Special Episode(tm)?

Everything I needed to know about life, I learned from the Diff'rent Strokes theme song. Mmmmm!
