If you grew up in the 1980s as I did, you are going to be extra sad when you read on.  “Family Ties” series creator Gary David Goldberg has died.  He was a few days short of his 69th birthday, succumbing to brain cancer.  He also wrote episodes for “The  Bob Newhart Show” and also produced “Lou Grant.”  He won two Emmys, a Peabody award and two Golden Globes for his work.  I had the occasion of meeting Gary David Goldberg several times and he was always super friendly.  Of course, I gushed to him my love for “Family Ties,” and he thanked me for my support!  What a class act.  RIP, Gary David Goldberg!  🙁

Happy Birthday Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross

What are the chances that Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross, who were the Keatons on the TV show “Family Ties,” were both born on the same day and are also the same age?  Very high!  There’s some useless trivia that you can spout off today and impress someone.  You’re welcome!
