  1. Oh no, I hadn’t heard about William Asher! This is probably a bad time to say I thought he had passed away about 3 years ago, isn’t it? Wonder who I have him confused with.

    I’m a sucker for those tiny line drawings of frolickers on the ads. They’re deceptively simple and completely charming.

  2. He’d been suffering from Alzheimer’s for awhile now. His passing was kinda over-shadowed by the sad glut of losses we’ve had over the past couple of weeks — Griffith, Borgnine, Holme and Zanuck.
