Merv Griffin 1925-2007

Entertainment giant Merv Griffin passed away today. His accomplishments are many, but to me he will always be the man who introduced me to the world of entertainment. The Merv Griffin Show fascinated me. Merv would sit, day after day, with the latest and greatest in movies, TV, comedy, music and literature. And I was a loyal viewer. Last spring, I purchased a compilation of Merv's interviews with 40 of the Most Interesting People of Our Time. From George Burns to Martin Luther King, for me, he was the king of the interview. A wonderful collection I will always cherish. He spoke of his mortality a few times, recently saying his tombstone reads "I will not be right back after this message". How appropriate ..... love ya Merv!
