TV Exec Ron Leavitt Dead (With Children)

The man who gave the world Al Bundy has passed away.

Ron Leavitt, who co-created the sitcom "Married With Children," died Sunday. He was 60. Leavitt died of lung cancer at his home in Los Angeles, said his publicist Larry Winokur. Leavitt was best known for teaming up with Michael G. Moye to create "Married With Children," a sitcom about the luckless shoe salesman Al Bundy and his dysfunctional family. "Married With Children" ran on the Fox network from 1987 to 1997 and became the network's second-longest running sitcom behind "The Simpsons."
In his memory, I fully endorse screaming "Woooooooooooooooh!!!" anytime an attractive girl named Kely walks into a room this week. What a visionary.
