FlicLw  cnhostyjwpab#8   Peter-Billy Mays was important beasuce he represented the  every man  and he showed ways to solve everyday problems. Everyday we go to work and push our little widgets from one end of the room to another, we are Billy Mays to our family, friends, and town. Without people like him, showing up everyday to do the hard, boring, unrecognized work of this world, we would all crouched around fires in our little caves.I respect him for doing an honest days work and hope I can be as influencial to those I love.
