A tragedy today on top of the 9/11 remembrances: Johnny Cash and John Ritter, who played 'Jack Tripper' on 'Three's Company', died today. It's a real blow for me, because Jack Tripper was a very influential character in my life. It was my favorite show when I was growing up, and I based my whole funny-guy persona on Jack Tripper. When I heard the news it was like a part of myself had died as well. I liked him on "8 Simple Rules" and as J.D.'s dad on "Scrubs." He will be sorely missed by me, and by a generation who was influenced by his acting and personality.
