    RIP Robin Williams

    Robin Williams, the manic comic who morphed from TV's Mork from Ork to Oscar-winning glory, is dead of an apparent suicide. He was 63.

    One of the funniest things I ever saw was he and Jonathan Winters Ad libbing!

    i had seen an article that said that he had been suffering from depression lately. i had seen one of his interviews on that show with the low key guy with the goatee. he borrowed a scarf from a gal in the audience, and inprov'ed for about 10 minutes doing about 10 different characters.

    Funny man, too bad. I wonder if he had money problems or something. Poor guy.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    This is sad, when you think of the number of people, including me, who he made a little happier with his mad comedic skills, that he should fall to his own demons in the end.
    Cheers,

    Sad but not really a surprise, often a talent like his that burns so bright, does not burn so long.

    What I'm really not liking is the political class getting in on this grief, they have no shame.

    Prayers to Williams family and friends.
