Gary Coleman RIP

The second Sigman Holiday Greeting death of the year came to pass on Friday, as Gary Coleman died at the age of 42.

By all accounts, it wasn't a very happy 42 years for Mr. Coleman (though he was pleasant enough when I met him). So, one would like to think that he has found happiness on the other side. Or at least that no one is asking him to say or write "that phrase" anymore.

I'm hesitant to write anymore, lest I stumble further into that snarky detachment that generally greets the passing of child actors. So I'll just wish a safe journey for Mr. Coleman. Thanks for the laughs (and for sufficiently freaking me out on those Very Special Episodes).
