R.I.P. Art Linkletter
The multi-talented radio/TV man will be best remembered for his interviews with kids
Art Linkletter, who encouraged both kids and grownups to say the "darndest things" during his decades as a genial but gently mischievous television personality, has died at age 97.
This video is a terrific remembrance of Linkletter at his best -- interviewing the kids. The best line comes about 2:20 into the video when Art says to a young boy, "You're a diplomat, aren't you?" The boy, without skipping a beat, replies, "No, I'm a Catholic Baptist!" Enjoy:
