Tony Randall

An e-mail from Joe Dante :

BRAIN GREMLIN DEAD! [sob button icon]

Mr. Randall spent recent years as spokesman for the National Funeral
Directors Association, saying that he was well-qualified because he
had attended so many funerals. Politically outspoken against
Republicans, he joked that although he hoped his funeral would be
attended by far-flung dignitaries that his friends should bar
President Bush and Vice President Cheney from entrance “because
everyone knew how much I hated them.”

In his autobiography, “Which Reminds Me,” he suggested his own
epitaph: “I’m not going to take this lying down.”
