    From Designing Women to Mannequin...one of the true American treasures has left us.

    Damn. That sucks. He was fantastic on Designing Women.

    It scares me to realize that he was 67. I suppose it's been a long time since Designing Women, but I'll always picture him as much younger than 67. Even the recent pictures of him on Google Images don't look like a guy who was nearing 70.

    I had no idea that show was on for that long. I would have guessed four seasons, five tops. 163 episodes is 7 or 8 seasons, although it doesn't look like the whole cast hung around for all of it.

    That amazed me, too. Then again, I am still living in the 80's.
