I don't know how I missed this last week:
Don Herbert, TV's Mr. Wizard died June 12th. As a kid I would always watch Mr. Wizard's World on Nickelodeon to see him lay the knowledge down on those lucky Canadian kids that got to hang out with him.
Of course, if I were one of those Canadian kids, I probably would have dragged dear old Don over to the darkside as we cackled gleefully turning everyday household items into high explosives, knock-out gas and other WMDs. I guess it's probably for the best that we never met.
