Over in GNG there was a thread about Andy Griffith's death. I replied something along the lines that, while I enjoyed his on screen personna, I didn't care for his real life politics. My reply, along with some others that were quite a bit more crass, were deleted and was directed to post politics in this forum. It made me think. When remembering a person in death, why should we separate their active politics from their other actions? I could understand if the person did not voluntarily enter politics and tried to stay out (e.g., a politician's child). But in this case Andy Griffith worked to elect a lot of gun control politicians. I imagine that the folks over at the Brady Bunch are remembering that with fondness, but in GlockTalk we have to edit our replies so that we only remember what is judged to be appropriate or decent - even if it only existed on a TV show.
