As director Garry Marshall, who first cast Williams in 'Happy Days' and later 'Mork and Mindy,' said today, "He could make everybody happy but himself."

Memories of Summers Past

Every once in awhile you'll see kids riding their bikes along the city streets.  On their way to some destination...the swimming pool, a friend's house, or possibly the library.  I wonder if the bicycle is still used as much as they were years ago for kids to go to and fro
