Ode to Gilligan

I was sad to read about the passing of Bob Denver, who brought to life two classic comedy characters in the form of Maynard Krebs and Gilligan. (Did Gilligan have a last name?) I wonder if, in his later years, Denver ever thought his life was wasted by being type cast as a comic buffoon. I hope he realized that making generations of people laugh is hardly a wasted life; indeed, you could do a lot worse than to bring happy moments into the homes of millions of people. Hopefully he's tripping over the Pearly Gates, making the saints guffaw, even as we speak.
