Robert Goulet

Robert Goulet has died.
I’m gonna miss him being about. He falls into an interesting class of people respectable in their field who are nonetheless willing to do anything for money, not afraid of losing their respectability. The most recent example of this was in a Super Bowl ad, but a couple earlier examples come to mind, my favorite being him playing himself as a lecherous pageant judge on Nikki.
But the reason that this has an extra kick is, well, I know someone with the same lung disease he had. Someone ironing out the details of getting on the lung transplant list even now. The failure of Goulet to get a transplant in time just makes that situation all the darker.
