A Nod to Gary Coleman

I want to mention Gary Coleman's death. It's a very sad thing. He somehow managed to remain in the public eye, especially the eye of those obsessed with pop culture. He WAS pop culture. He was the ultimate non-sequitur. It didn't matter what your show or book was about; you could introduce Gary Coleman and it made perfect sense. It was made all the funnier that it was not only Gary Coleman, but Gary Coleman playing Gary Coleman. He didn't need a character. He just was. That is something that I'm going to miss.
