    I have since learned of his role in the civil rights movement but as a kid I knew him from hosting SNL in the early years. RIP

    I remember him from the 1968 Democratic Convention. I think somebody tried to nominate him for Vice-President even though he was about seven years too young to be eligible. He had a dignity about him although he could be humorous as in the SNL entry. That was an example of Bond's ability to reach different types of people.
