    After 5 years I decided to quit my old work and that decision was a life-changer for me… I started freelancing at home, for a company I stumbled upon online, several hours /a day, and I make much more than i did on my office work… Check i got for last month was for 9 thousand bucks… Awesome thing about this work is that now i have more free time with my family… http://chilp.it/728813e

    R.I.P. Mr. Glass.

  • Jeff Rittenour

    best sitcom ever. period. most real life police show. Barney Miller should be considered a national treasure – it’s a show about real life. It’s more relevant today almost (and so many episodes eerily foreshadowed events that actual happened. that aspect is fascinating). Just Barney, Wojo, Wentworth and Chano left.

    in 1980, during the “Luke and Laura” heyday on “General Hospital,” Ron was the partner of Tony Geary, who I still don’t think has formally “come out.” I hope that he did not suffer from AIDS.
