RIP Gary Coleman (1968-2010)

Gary Coleman, who become a famous child star because of his role as Arnold in the television show 'Diff'rent Strokes', has died.

I remember watching that show back in the day, and it had some amusing moments (and of course Arnold's famous catch phrase), though my memory is sketchy at the moment. (There was a pretty amusing episode in which Arnold considers converting to Judaism.)

More recently, Coleman has made the news in other ways (e.g., he ran for Governor of California as part of the ridiculous 2003 election). And his name is one of the ones that gets brought up when one discusses former child stars and where they ended up.
