1 Carroll O'Connor was a great actor. The only thing that got to me about him was the "I'm not letting go of the Archie character; can't we stretch it out for a few more seasons?" However his acting on Heat of the Night cancelled the "Archie stretch" out. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on August 17, 2013, 2:06 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

3 Oh, OK. I didn't see "Reverse Boned" so I got confused. There are few things more painful than losing your child. I felt terrible for him when I learned his son died. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 31, 2011, 2:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

5 Sorry, but I fail to see how fighting drugs is a boning reason. What's wrong with making illegal drug dealers pay for ruining people's lives? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 31, 2011, 11:03 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 In 1995, O'Connor's son Hugh committed suicide after a long battle with drug addiction. Following his son's death, O'Connor appeared in public service announcements for Partnership for a Drug Free America and spent the rest of his life working to raise awareness about drug addiction. O'Connor also successfully lobbied to get the State of California to pass legislation allowing family members of an addicted person or anyone injured by a drug dealer's actions, including employers, to sue for reimbursement for medical treatment and rehabilitation costs. The law, known as the Drug Dealer Civil Liability Act in California, went into effect in 1997. Eleven other states followed with similar legislation, which has been referred to as The Hugh O'Connor Memorial Law. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on May 31, 2011, 4:02 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
