Borgnine was unique and a standout among actors. I know he spent 10 years in the navy, got out as a Gunners Mate First Class in 1945. As of a couple years ago he still lived in the same house in California that he bought in 1965. I admire all that.
Rest Well, Ernie. You have earned it.

First Andy Griffith and now McHale, my childhood is gone.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

I don't see McHale's Navy reruns on TV anymore.

We saw him on Fox the other day, laughing about being in Sponge Bob. He was a remarkable actor and man. They don't make them like him anymore----a man of talent, not a pretty boy, who made it in Hollywood based on his ability.

RIP Ernie - Your work in the "Dozen" was brilliant.It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

Several years ago, I was talking to an editor at Tekno Comics, who was trying to come up with a name for a series. They had the rights to Asimov's I-Robot, and wanted to call them I-Borgs, but Paramount was had copyrighted the word Borg, so they were stuck. The team consisted of five robots. I suggested that they add four more members and emphasize their zeal and intensity in the title. The editor asked me what I'd call them, and I replied, "The Earnest Borg-Nine."

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Sad, but he lived a long, productive life. I had to put on my favorite movie and watch again.
The Wild Bunch, in which he co-starred with William Holden.The poster formerly known as chuck58 on the old board.
