Abraham Charles Vigoda was born in 1921 and is best known as Sal “Tell Mike it was only business” Tessio in “The Godfather” and as Fish in ’70s sitcom “Barney Miller” and its spin-off “Fish.”
Vigoda more recently appeared in a Super Bowl commercial for Snickers in 2010.
IsAbeVigodaDead.com might be the most satisfying website on the Internet. In the age of the “Amazonification” of websites where sites are trying to be all things to all people, IsAbeVigodaDead.com is beautiful in its simplicity.
Someone once told me that The Drudge Report still works in Internet Explorer version 1. I have no idea if that statement is true, but I am very confident that IsAbeVigodaDead.com would work on the Apple IIe that I played “Karateka” on in seventh grade.
I’m not sure what would cause someone to spend the time and money to create this site (or the rival and significantly more elaborate site AbeVigoda.com,) but the Internet is a better place because they did.
