I am referring to Billy Mays. Of all the notables who kicked the bucket last week, he is my favorite.
I didn't know who he was---I figured he was some washed-up sports figure. But I bought many of the gadgets he was hawking: the superglue, the kitchen gadgets, the Oxyclean, all of them $19.95--make that Only $19.95.
It won't be the same without him.
