    Peter Falk most famous as Lt. Columbo has passed. He was a fine actor. If you should ever get a chance to see him in the movie "The Great Race", do not pass it by. It is some of his best work.

    JUST ONE MORE QUESTION


    If you, in my town, murder do,
    Be assured, Iím on to you.

    Iíll park my carcass at your door,
    Making queries by the score.

    Every time you turn your head,
    And think youíre free, Iím there instead.

    I gather up the evidence,
    At the scene or residence.

    Iíll dig and scratch for every clue,
    And drive you nuts before Iím through.

    Though my appearance seems disheveled,
    To your freedom, sights are leveled.

    Rumpled raincoat, unlit cigar,
    Tousled hair, crummy car.

    Compared to you, I donít impress,
    But I have come to make arrests.

    I solve each case that Iím assigned,
    A record that can blow your mind.

    Thereís just one thing Iíve sadly noted.
    I never seem to get promoted.

    Signed, Lt. Columbo

    Just read the web notice. Did not realize that he had dementia. RIP.

    What a tremendous legacy of roles for us to admire and enjoy.

    Poor guy had Alzheimer's, which is different from dementia.
    I was sad the other day to hear that Clarence Clemons died. He was the original and only sax player for the E Street Band and was with Bruce Springsteen for 40 years.
    But we still have the music :)

    Another great one gone....RIP Peter Falk. I had read in years past that he also had one fake eye. Can't for the life of me remember what had happened to his eye. He was so great as Lt. Columbo.

    If I remember correctly, he had some sort of cancer at the tender age of 3.

    Years ago when I was young, I worked in the L.A. area, and I was driving back to work from running an errand. I was on the Hollywood Freeway right where it gets to Studio City. My car was having trouble, so I coasted off the freeway ramp and onto Ventura Boulevard near a gas station. I was standing outside my car in the center divider when Peter Falk pulled up behind me and asked me if I was OK. I said yes, I am. He smiled, waved and pulled off. I'm sure he would have helped me if I said I needed it. I always enjoyed Columbo. His subtlety was a marvel!!
