    RIP Robert Guillaume

    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov

    RIP Robert Guillaume. I always enjoyed his show, Benson. It was one of my staple shows I watched very week during my younger years.

    Now I finally feel old.

    Benson was great.

    Guillaume was first a big Broadway star. In 1976, he starred in an all Black production of Guys and Dolls that is still my favorite version of the show. A much bigger talent than most TV fans realized.

    I loved the Benson sit com but he was also a very talented baritone. I saw him live at the Cincinnati Pops

    Benson was a spin-off of Soap, and far more successful.

    He was also in Sports Night.

    Gov. Gatling lived to 94 and Lt. Gov. Dubois made it to 89. Pretty good run for that ticket.
