    Yes, one of my favorite characters on one of my favorite TV shows ever.

    Re: "Suicide is selfish." Depression means that the person's thoughts are not completely rational, and they are literally not themselves - the difference in outlook, thought content, reasoning ability and more, is night and day when someone is depressed and when they are not. That level of depression is not "the blues," it's completely incapacitating. To write someone who was in that level of pain off as "selfish" or somehow superficial or self absorbed is to do them a great disservice.

    The Bachelor/Bachelorette series is a soap opera with unskilled actors, bad writing, and beautiful locations...it even edits the real moon!

    Wow, what a shock. Rest in Peace, Mr. Graves. You will be missed.

    RIP Peter Graves

    Re: Rest In Peace.

    Oh, I am saddened by this. I've know for years that he was the younger brother of Jim Arness. I think their real name was Aurness. I remember Peter Graves in Fury, in Stalag 17, and of course in Mission Impossible (the intelligent and witty tv show with a great ensemble cast, not the dreaful hack-and-slash movies drenched in mindless violence and special effects.)

    Another good actor with a successful marriage, he was married to the same woman since 1950. I shall miss him.

    I was shocked! I loved him in both Mission Impossible and Airplane-what a mix!
