Enjoy the plane ride, Mr. Roark

Seriously? Yahoo reports this on the bottom of their entertainment section. The Rich Corinthian Leather Man. The "KIRRRRRKKKKKKK!!!!!" man. The man who gave Willam Shatner a much deserved "F*ck You!" in both the original series and the second motion picture. Ok, maybe Checkov didn't deserve the bug in the ear thing.

Mr. Roark was a magician. He improved the lives of everyone who came to Fantasy Island. He was the straight man to Tattoo's bumbling cuteness. Ok, that was typecasting, but I do not blame Ricardo.
