Chuck Barris (1929-2017)

My friend Tim alerted me to Chuck Barris’s death this morning. I replied that I never really followed Barris. I never watched The Gong Show or even saw George Clooney’s movie about Barris’s (alleged) C.I.A. career.

Tim countered that Barris wrote “Palisades Park.” I’m embarrassed to say I did not know that:

So here you go, Tim, Barris has been officially added to my deathwatch.
