Eddie Albert died today. He was 99. Best known for his work in the old sitcom Green Acres, it seems there was a lot more to the man than cheesy television roles.

Each page of his obituary made me like him more and more. A good man has died, a man who did a great deal in helping save that which I presently enjoy. There’s not too many people who I see and think I wouldn’t mind a life like their life… it seems Eddie Albert had one of those lives I wouldn’t mind living. Key details, of course, I don’t want (neither the stage nor the screen hold any appeal for me)… but how he spent his time and how he spent his energy seem to be well worth emulating.

His was a life worth living, something far too many people can’t say about their own lives.
