RIP Art Linkletter

I know three things about Art Linkletter, aside from the fact that he lived inside a television for 50 years: He was a Republican, he blamed his daughter's suicide on LSD which prompted endless apocryphal tales told to my generation about how LSD will make you go crazy and jump out a window, and he was married to his wife for an amazing 75 years.

There's more stuff about him here.

Please feel welcome to share what you knew about Art Linkletter—good, bad, or neutral—in comments.
