Bob Denver Rescued From Earth...RIP

Bob Denver died.
Here's an interesting excerpt from the story:
"The show's success, according to its creator, Sherwood Schwartz, was rooted in the fact that people of entirely different backgrounds were thrown together.... 'I knew that by assembling seven different people and forcing them to live together, the show would have great philosophical implications,' Schwartz said. Besides Hale's skipper and Wells' young farm-girl tourist, the other castaways were Jim Backus and Natalie Schafer, as rich snobs Thurston and Lovey Howell; Tina Louise, as movie star Ginger Grant; and Russell Johnson, as science professor Roy Hinkley Jr."
Maybe those people who needed 17 inch TVs in NOLA should watch it, when the electricity comes back on that is.
