Andy Griffith


The death of Andy Griffith the other day brought back a flood of memories to me about Mayberry and all of the characters that were so funny on that show. But it also posed a question in my mind. What happened to us and what happened to television? One needs only to look at the sitcoms today and it quickly becomes apparent that the only thing that seems to be presented, as entertainment anymore, is humor that would have been censored on the spot back then.
