My Youth Keeps Slipping Away

The Los Angeles Times reports,
Robert Hegyes, an actor whose character, Juan Epstein, was one of the Sweathogs on the 1970s TV sitcom "Welcome Back, Kotter," died Thursday of an apparent heart attack in New Jersey. He was 60.
I used to love that show; it had a great ensemble cast. I suppose if I watched a few episodes now, I'd find them as dated as that rust colored leisure suit I used to own. 

Still, I want to be too young to have the sitcom stars of my youth dying. Being reminded that I'm not makes me feel a lot older.
