Patrick McGoohan, age 80

by on Jan.15, 2009, under Uncategorized

As you may or may not have heard, Patrick McGoohan died at age 80. Thinking about this, I realized that I admired this man and his work. So I figured I should write about it…

“I was supposed to be on holiday!”

“You left! After this!” The green and black faces stared at her. “Number Six.”

“I was just taking a break, that’s all, just a quick break from the words, going on vacation…Who are you? What do you want?!?”

“Why did you resign?”
