Black had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis just a year ago, and apparently died from complications of the disease. [more inside]

Joe Connelly dead at 85

Joe Connelly conked out, as the Beav might've put it. The "Leave it to Beaver" co-creator had many other credits to his name, but for my money, his most memorable achievement was creating TV's smarmiest character, Eddie Haskell.
