In not mentioning the passing of Suzanne Pleshette, who died over the weekend. Ms. Pleshette played Bob Newhart's sensible and sometimes sardonic wife Emily on "The Bob Newhart Show" in the 1970s. As regular readers of this feature know, Newhart is a personal favorite of mine and I greatly admired Ms. Pleshette's work on that show. She appeared in many other shows, movies and plays during her long, distinguished career. May she rest in peace.
