How is "Walk" a "thing?" Wasn't "Mild Sauce" a pretty good answer? Was Raymond stealing Sajak's glory? Can you see the lust in Vanna's White eyes? What happened after the camera's stopped rolling? Well, as you might guess, it's a sad story if you give a shit.
Raymond tried to hang around after his run was up. "I wanted to have a life with the show, I loved the show enough to be a part of it." Enough so that he had to be ejected from the set on 4 separate occasions. Finally, it came to the point that production offices were closed because of "concerns that Taylor may be in the building." Charges were filed.
Over a chicken dinner, Raymond told a reporter "I just want to work for the staff, and I didn't know where to go. I said: hey, give me a job. I know everything about TV." Guess Raymond just didn't have what it takes.
So what's the deal? What's he on? Crack? PCP? Is he tweaking? According to someone claiming to be Raymond posting on bojangles.com, "I have autism not a crack addict thank you."
Is it true?
Does it matter?
Here's hoping you're well, Raymond. Keep on keeping on.
Update on April, 24 2012:
Sad news to report. Unless an anonymous user on youtube is playing some strange game of trickery, Raymond Taylor no longer walks the Earth.
"He wasn't a crackhead! In fact, he was a very intelligent man. A bit different and a tad eccentric, nonetheless a gentle soul. The people that knew him understood him. RIP Raymond E Taylor 2/27/44 - 2/27/2010"
Happy trails, Raymond. May the road rise to meet you.
