R.I.P. Paul Henning

I discovered yesterday that Paul Henning died last Friday.  You may not recognize Paul by his name, but it's quite likely you know his work.  Particularly if you are in the 35+ crowd…can you say "The Beverly Hillbillies", "Petticoat Junction" or "Green Acres"?

These are shows I have fond memories of and still catch in reruns early in the morning while working out.  As part of The Beverly Hillbillies, Paul penned "The Ballad of Jed Clampett", which I used as the basis of The Ballad of Joe Barbie for the SFFL trophy.

Thanks for all the laughs Paul.
