It's a wise man who knows not to push the limits of the law.

There's a certain karmic symmetry to a week that began with news of the death of Barney Fife ending with the news that Bill O'Reilly is now playing Barney Fife.

The king is dead. Long live the king!

I remember that episode where Barney called Aunt Bee on the phone and sexually harrassed her. I think she won the law suit. And then there was the War on Christmas episode, where opie was forced to sing Silent Night with different lyrics and Andy shot the singing teacher. Not because of the song, but because she was hunting with him.

Don't forget Opie, who refused to repeat the pledge of allegiance. He said, "Aw shucks, pa. That old thing was changed by a meddling Congress a few years ago. Besides, it was written by a socialist. Can I go out and play now."

Fife said, "(doing the fake nose wipe of wisdom) The boys got a point, Andy."
