Garry Marshall ruined my life
He ruined all our lives with terrible programming, churlish and juvenile. "Happy Days" may have been the single most harmful tripe on the tube, not that anyone would ever know it with all the worse shows Marshall was responsible for.

HOUSTON, Texas - Officials in Houston released video Thursday showing police officers shooting a black man who police said had been holding a gun while standing in a street.
