JOHN RITTER DEAD AT AGE

JOHN RITTER DEAD AT AGE 54: Ironically, as I posted on Monday, I saw him the day before at Disneyland. The Washington Post article doesn’t give any details about how he died, but he didn’t appear in ill-health there. I only glanced up at the Jumbotron, but he certainly looked and sounded like the same old John Ritter.

I hated Three’s Company, but Ritter appeared to be a genuinely nice guy–and of course, his father was a legend in country music.

UPDATE: Apparently, Ritter died of a massive heart attack after taping the most recent episode of 8 Simple Rules for Dating my Teenage Daughter, his ABC comedy series.
