A leading man type in the fifties, star of many a detective story*, Leslie Nielsen turned to comedy in the 1980's and the world has been a funnier place ever since. I haven't quoted from a Leslie Nielsen line since...earlier this morning. And don't call me Shirley! Rest in peace, Mr. Nielsen!

* I was an extra in a Leslie Nielsen made-for-TV movie once. My claim to fame!
