Less than a month ago, I mentioned Robert Blake on this blog talking about the television show Hollywood Squares.
Robert Blake died yesterday. And the headline is “Robert Blake, actor acquitted in wife’s murder, dies at 89“. Not “Robert Blake, Television’s Baretta“. Not “Robert ‘Bobby’ Blake, Mickey in the Our Gang/Little Rascals Comedies”.
As you might recall, gentle reader, Larry McMurtry died while I was reading The Last Picture Show.
I guess that’s not a large sample size, and it’s probably because I’m an old man who often blogs about older people. But still. One can never be too careful.
