Rest In Peace, Arnold Drummond
Sadly, as most people have heard by now, Gary Coleman, forever known to us all as Arnold Drummond on Diff’rent Strokes has passed away. Although often the butt of several jokes later in his life, Coleman was a true survivor of the Hollywood puppy mill that so many kids get utterly destroyed in upon entering. His mark on pop culture, particularly my generation is completely non-negotiable, he introduced us to the Gooch, something called “Tootie” and gave us a catch phrase that has become part of the fabric of modern English. Thank you for the memories Gary, Simpson/Hemstead extends it’s deepest sympathies to your friends, family and loved ones.
