Billy Mays has passed away. I understand he lived not too far from me, in Palm Harbor FL.
In many ways Billy Mays is the antithesis of Willie Loman. Billy Mays was a hero of the American Dream, not a symbol of its failure as was Arthur Miller’s salesman. He showed that you could reach great heights by doing one single thing well and doing it with gusto.
I hope he is hawking some truly heavenly products now.
