    Shame. He was a funny guy. There was a very short-lived series about a symphony orchestra where he played a musician and could best be described as a funny Henry Kissinger. Can't remember the name of the series.

    Sirs, Madames,

    He has been voicing radio commercials for a limo outfit in Toronto. Unmistakably voice. Dry-as-toast delivery.

    Max Gail must be nervous.

    YHS, etc

    RIP. Very funny guy, in an understated way. Not only on "Barney Miller," but he was always hilarious when he was a guest on Johnny Carson's show.

    I once heard a cop say that Barney Miller was the most realistic TV show about police work,

    Did you know the Trilateral Commission has a website?

    They do. Google it. Seems legit.

    Hell if I'll link it. I don't want them to trace my IP.

    And a nice guy as well.

    About 20 or so years ago, my then-girlfriend, now wife and I saw him at Cantor's Deli in Los Angeles. She didn't want to bother him, but me being a HUGE Dietrich and Barney Miller fan and having no shame waited for him to get up before saying "Hi."

    He couldn't have been nicer, telling me how fun it was to play Dietrich and how surprised he was about all the hub-bub surrounding his character.

    RIP Dietrich.
