Sad news: Peter Falk, best known for the character Columbo, has Alzheimer's. According to his daughter, Emmy-awarding winner Falk, 81, "not competent enough to run his own life and needs full-time custodial care....(He)does not always recognise (sic) familiar people, places and things and is unable to bathe himself or care for his clothing." But supposedly he was still driving 6 months ago when he crashed into a building.
More and more famous people are going to be diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer's. Maybe that's what it will take for it to get some more attention in the media and from the government.
