1, 2, 3...

Don (Knotts), Darren (McGavin), and Dennis (Weaver)... weird how that happens. Not that it happens, of course, but that it happens in threes. For as long as I can remember, notable people have been dying in threes.

Probably not so weird when you think about how many people there are walking around the planet, but still. And this group is even weirder - their names all start with "D" - what a strange coincidence.

I guess it's all relative.

I've always thought that so weird, too. I mean that "3" thing happens so often. Know what else I wonder...do you think that all the other "celebs" out there breathe a sigh of relief after the third? Anyway, they will be missed.

My mom used to say that, too. But I noticed that she didn't really care about the time interval. She would just count to three, say famous people always die in threes, then start counting again. It didn't really matter to her whether they died the same day or weeks apart. This might just be a matter of perspective.

One of the local entertainment guys commented on the "dying in threes" thing, too. The one I'll miss the most of these three is Darren McGavin. Always liked him.
