Andy Griffiths house is burned to the ground.

One thing about social movements and symbolic totems: sometimes, the old guys were actually right–and when the new guys/and gals/ and transgendered others get the keys to the castle? They just burn shit down.

Or, mindless, impulsive revolution.

Andy Griffith gave us all a role model of wholesome and explicable good behavior via the Andy Griffith show-tolerance for te mentally ill, and alcoholic; respect for elders, and neighbors; and mostly, via Aunt Bea–the ability to work with women who were gay, but stuck in a paternalist culture that could not describe such a thing then (because the average IQ of cops is generally around 100, and they HATE anything that challenges their black and white schemas.)
