America’s sheriff Andy Griffith dead at 86
I have been a big fan of the 60s TV show, “The Andy Griffith Show” and recently purchased a 50th anniversary dvd which had the 1986 reunion movie. In today’s fast paste world with it crime violence and social unrest the wholesome charms of Mayberry and the escapades of Sheriff Andy Taylor and Deputy Barney Fife still resonate with much of the American public. It reflects an idealized time and is a comfort like a bowl of ice cream on a hot and muggy day.
America has lost a cultural icon today and I just want to thank him for all the joy and laughter he brought to all of us.
