Elisson brings sad tidings of the death of beloved actor Don Knotts...

...who died in 2006. See the comments.

Uh...he died in 2006.

Don Knotts died in 2006.

Just thought you'd like to know.

OK, so I'm a little slow on the uptake. I'm sure Elisson's tribute mentioned 2006, and I somehow missed that.

It's amazing, though, how quickly people react to my tossed-off posts, but I get no reaction at all to posts that I slave over. What a weird readership.

Kevin Kim said...

OK, I see that Elisson did not mention 2006, but he also didn't imply that Knotts had recently died, so all blame for being slow on the uptake rests on me.

Bratfink said...

Don't feel bad, Kev. Think of all the folks who died just after Michael Jackson did. Who noticed?

SJHoneywell said...

The commenting thing makes perfect sense, really. A short note like this one merits an equally short, no-thought reply. Major posts require digesting. I for one would avoid a single sentence comic response to a 1500-word essay. When I do reply to those, it's after a lot of careful reading and careful thought, and that takes time (which I don't always have) and focus (which is often in short supply).

It's just a bit late
To ululate
For Mr. Knotts

Though he made us smile
He's been gone a while
Has Mr. Knotts

Once he lived amongst men
Until the sad day when
He was Not
