Greatest American Hero creator Stephen J. Cannell dies

A moment of silence, please, for the passing of author and producer Stephen J. Cannell.  He wrote a ton of 70s and 80s action TV shows: the Rockford Files, the A-Team, Hunter, Hardcastle & McCormick and others. All favorites of mine.  He was also the bestselling author of the Shane Scully novels.  As cheesy as it sounds, that little film clip at the end of his shows, with him typing furiously on a typewriter, helped inspire me to become a writer.  He’ll be sorely missed.
