    I know it's news, but boy they are making a huge deal out of this, like the president died, which would have far reaching implications.

    He was a funny actor who had demons b:dontknow:

    Conan was JUST ABOUT to ask Robin Williams to be on the show, but unfortunately didn't get around to it in the last 15 years...

    I loved the guy but it's not like you couldn't hear the meat wagon rolling up for him 20 years ago.

    Manic people make me nervous -even when they're talented.
    Except for Gilbert.
    He's different.

    I agree. He was funny, but he didn't cure cancer.

    Yeah- it was sort of moving the way he chokes up right there at the end & then pulls himself together.
    The Irish sure are sentimental bastards.

    There was a guy working on a cure for cancer who I saw speak when I was in school. I was convinced he'd do it.

    I found out later he died of a heart attack. Surrounded by Harvard trained MDs. In an airport. Where there are AEDs every few feet. NONE of them were charged.

    Giant loss to humanity.

    That death never made the news.

    I always thought it would make a GREAT plot to a medical mystery novel, with big pharma as the evil villain.

    :haha: could you imagine what she'd do with the great story line that writes itself?

    it's really a sad story. And I do think his death seems suspicious. One of the doctors who was there was telling me about it. This guy was the youngest person to graduate Harvard Med School when he did. There has since been someone younger. But damn, if I'm dying, I want him near me. AND a charged AED.

    But she can't pronounce "medical" or even "novel".
    Any words ending with "al" or "el" present a vast challenge for Beth.

    :bigthink in theory she could write such a novel but her unfortunate speech impediment would preclude any public readings.

    When Howard finally kicks, will people kiss his ass or will the truth finally come out? I've still never seen a wigless pic of Michael Jackson but at least it was confirmed in the reports that he was a wig wearer.

    You can always say you tripped and grabbed the first thing you could.
