Andrew Koenig, an actor most famous for playing Richard ‘Boner’ Stabone on the 1980s sitcom Growing Pains, was found dead in Vancouver yesterday after a couple days of being missing. The 41-year-old had been suffering from depression.

Koenig’s father, Walter, played Chekov on the original Star Trek series. Chekov, the youngest member of the U.S.S. Enterprise, is of course Russian; Walter was born to Lithuanian Jews.

Hi, Great job! This is very much helpful for my study and i hope to see more of your articles someday! How i wish i can meet you in person so i can get to know you more.

If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
