#4 IMHO The Andy Griffith Show (the Black and White years -- the show seemed to jump the shark when it went to color) was TV's finest show. It's episodes consisted of meaningful (if often silly) short stories about people I would like to have known in a place I would like to have lived. While it lasted, it was beautiful. Andy Griffith was responsible for that.
Lately, because of his misguided liberal Hollywood (Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!) support for Obama and his policies, it has been fashionable for some conservatives to pee on Andy Griffith's legacy and now his grave. How very thoughtful and noble.

#5 Ditto Javirong. If you never carried a cane pole or a .22 across the handlebars of your Schwinn Wasp Paperboy down gravel roads, with your dog running along beside....it's a bit difficult to relate. Days gone by, etc.

As a young lad, been there and done that. Problem is, you can't do that anymore without having a SWAT team called out to wrestle you to the ground. And that's if they don't just gun you down.
And Andy is one Liberal pinheads that helped destroy our culture. Also, while he may have made shows that depicted that time in America, ideologically, he was against. Like all Leftists, he was a hypocrite. He made his living pretending to be for something he inwardly despised.
And for that I piss on his legacy and his grave.

#8 RIP, but my love for his earlier work was beaten down by his hawking for ObamaCare. Never has an icon fallen so quickly.
