I had this idea for an editorial cartoon regarding today's news about the death of Reverend Jerry Falwell.

Falwell is at the Pearly Gates, standing before St. Peter who says:

"No, you can't go back in three days. Who the hell do you think you are?"

Okay, so I wasn't a fan.

But I did want to acknowledge his Toobworld credentials, aside from his body of work in Reali-TV with appearances on talk shows and in documentaries, but especially with the '700 Club' which still holds sway over the ABC Family network.

Rev. Falwell also appeared as himself in two politically-laced TV series, one a drama and the other a sitcom:

"First Monday" .... Himself (1 episode, 2002)
- Age of Consent (2002) TV Episode (as Rev. Jerry Falwell) .... Himself

"LateLine" .... Himself (1 episode, 1998)
- Lawyer, Lawyer (1998) TV Episode .... Himself

Don't forget that Richard Paul from 'Murder She Wrote' played Falwell in a TV movie (Fall from Grace) and a theatrical release (The People vs. Larry Flint).

Richard Paul played the mayor on 'Murder, She Wrote'.
