    I wonder if he took LSD in his final years.
  8. AND, according to the obit, his wife is still alive.

    The man lived a nice, long live, though with more than its share of tragedy, since he outlived three of his four children.

    And like Poindexter and shockey, I thought he'd passed away years ago.

    In any event, RIP Mr. Linkletter. I'll always remember him fondly.

    I HEARTILY ENDORSE the long LIFE lived by Art Linkletter.

    Is his picture still on the $100,000 bill in the modern version of The Game of Life? Or have they gone to credit cards in that game, while you go around the board, get your house re-possessed and go into debt?
