If you won't listen to us, then please listen to sheriff Andy Taylor

Ron Howard is taking a stand and it's a funny-but-poignant look at this presidential election. If anyone can reach the elderly white folks who fear change, it's got to be Andy Griffith. Who better represents them and their small town sensibilities than the venerable and trustworthy sheriff Andy Taylor? Watch it.

The real clincher would be to bring Deputy Barney Fife and Ralph Malph into the mix with a rousing debate about the merits of change. Ralph could ignore Deputy Fife's desperate pleas for change by making dumb jokes and doing lame sight gags, until Barney snaps, puts his one bullet in his pistol and shoots Ralph in the gut.

Or maybe show Joanie Cunningham and Chachi Arcola all grown up, talking about their children's futures. If they played it true, though, Joanie would have a black eye. We all knew that Chachi was a hot head.
