A homeschooling innovation brings opportunity and danger
Tim Conway, Emmy-winning actor and a star of The Carol Burnett Show, died on May 14 at the age of 85. Conway began his career performing comedy spots on late-night TV during the 1950s. His first hit was the role of bumbling Ensign Charles Parker on the sitcom McHale’s Navy, but his biggest success was as a co-star on The Carol Burnett Show. Conway joined the comedy team in 1975 after years as a guest. He won three Emmys for his performances on the show and a fourth as a writer, becoming popular for his straight-faced humor and kind, innocent personality. Before his retirement, Conway won two more Emmys for guest appearances on Coach and 30 Rock.
