What'choo Talkin' 'Bout, Willis?!?

Gary Coleman, the cute kid actor from TV's "Diff'rent Strokes" died today at age 42.  While he didn't get much in the way of acting opportunities after he grew up, his role as the younger brother on that show bridged a lot of gaps in the presentation of racial differences on mainstream television in the 1980s. 

He was a lot of fun to watch while I was growing up, and it saddens me to see someone so talented die so young.  Heck, I'm only a couple years away from 42, myself.
