I always cherished Art Linkletter because as a boy, he appeared good-natured and genuine. He related to kids well and didn't discriminate. His show was entertaining, but not in a superficial way. He appeared to be a man of character and substance. The world lost a good man when he passed. Thank God, we have his work to remember him by.
