Mr. Drummond Is No More

Well this is sad. Conrad Bain, aka Mr. Drummond, aka the rich white dude who adopted two poor black kids on the best show ever Diff’rent Strokes, has died. He was 89.

Damn, only one of these people is still alive. Okay I am a Debbie Downer.

Admittedly, when my friend Shannon emailed me that he had passed I was all, wait, didn’t he already kick the bucket? But nope, he was still trucking it.

Diff’rent Strokes has had a tragic legacy. Both Dana Plato (Kimberly) and Gary Coleman (Arnold) died young, and sole survivor Todd Bridges battled drug problems and an attempted murder charge in the late ’80s.

But let’s remember happier times, when Arnold learned how to defend himself against the Gooch!
