Mike Douglas, R.I.P.

Some comments from my brother on the passing of Mike Douglas:

"I especially remember the Lennon shows and a particularly articulate critique of Vietnam from a young Richard Dreyfuss. To his everlasting credit, as a broadcaster, Mike usually knew when to get out of the way and let it roll, which must have been hard for a guy with his background and beliefs. There was also a dual interview with Lucy and Orson Welles, that was a lot of fun to watch but oddly enough, it's the harder edged stuff that stands out in my memory because he handled it so well."
