RIP Andy Griffith.
I always enjoyed watching I Love Lucy followed by The Andy Griffith Show on Fox. I even got into Matlock reruns on KDOC. It was interesting seeing Fife back in the saddle with Andy, along with the assistance of Trivette and "Jay Leno". It led to a killer Matlock impersonation by the late great Phil Hartman.
Nobody mentioned it but last month Henry Hill died. Hill's contribution? A life of crime which led to the last great Scorsese movie, Goodfellas.All they got from Paulie was protection from other guys looking to rip them off. That's what it's all about. That's what the FBI can never understand - that what Paulie and the organization offer is protection for the kinds of guys who can't go to the cops. They're like the police department for wiseguys.
