THE PROFESSOR

I just now saw that Russell Johnson, most famous for playing The Professor on Gilligan’s Island, died last week.

As a kid I always wanted to grow up to be him.

Still do.

So the only real question I have is why didn't he end up sandwiched between MaryAnn and Ginger every night. Dude really should have been able to close on those deals easy.

Not anymore! Who want to be deceased when they grow up?

Apologies for any incorrect inference of disrespect for Mr Johnson, who lived an apparently admirable life, especially his military service as an airman in WWII, and having a good character by most reports. He will be missed.

Aren't we all going to be deceased when we grow up? Kinda a participation award in reverse.

And, as I said on Insty, I'm constantly impressed how actors from Russell's era tended to be real life WWII bad-asses.
