a picture is worth a thousand words

Just one more thing…

Peter Falk, the unforgettable Lieutenant Columbo, left us last June… No more heros with battered raincoat. As a tribute (and probably because I want to be part of Columbo, in some way…) I collected around 1.000 reactions people left (in huffingtonpost.com and eonline.com) after his dead, and recreated his portrait with the most commonly used words.

Do you know that Columbo’s scriptwriters, William Link and Richard Lewison, admitted they based most of the character of Lieutenant Columbo on Falk himself?.

The beginning of the single word list: falk (471), columbo (398), one (389), peter (338), great (297), rip (293),loved (256), actor (213), missed (212)…

If we count three words combo: just one more thing (71), rip peter falk (23), loved peter falk (18),one of my all time favorite (16)…

Wait Peter!, don’t leave!… just one more thing…
