In Memoriam

Al Lewis, grandpa on TV's "The Munsters," dies.

"The Munsters" and "The Addams Family" were two of the shows I always watched as a child. I didn't know how accomplished Lewis was until I read the article! I knew he ran for political office in New York, ran a reataurant, and coached basketball but I didn't know he also wrote a couple of children's books when he was much younger as well as receiving a Ph.D. in child psychology from Columbia plus several other interesting jobs over the years! I also never realized he was so tall (6'1")!
