Bob Keeshan, gentle "Captain Kangaroo" of children's TV fame, died a few days ago; he was 76. The New York Times obituary of him by Richard Severo concludes:

Asked on one occasion how he could star in his own show, engage in lecturing, volunteer, study French and still spend time with his family and his hobbies of photography, fishing and sailing, Mr. Keeshan replied, "One of the big secrets of finding time is not to watch television."
