Maybe it was a childhood filled with MatchGame '75, or those classic performances on The X-Files, or maybe it was his unapologetic and openly gay (at a time when that was pretty controversial) persona,
but I always liked Charles Nelson Reilly and was sad to see that he died this weekend. Rest in peace.
And of course, it would be remiss of me to not include words of gratitude and appreciation, inadequate though they be, to all of those who have sacrificed by serving in our armed forces on this Memorial Day. We owe a sacred trust to these men and women. Let us honor their sacrifices without words designed to further a political agenda.
