Good Bye Bozo!

One of the worst parts of getting older is watching those people that I loved to watch as a kid die.
Another one of those folks is gone.
Larry Harmon who played Bozo the Clown for over 50 years died yesterday. While he was not the original Bozo, he is responsible for making the character so widely known for licensing the character to others, including Bob Bell who many of us grew up watching as Bozo on WGN out of Chicago. So, while it was really Bob Bell that I "knew" and loved as a kid, it would have never happened without the dream and vision of Larry Harmon.

Good bye Bozo!
