    Gilbert's thoughts on this are compelling. I especially liked this quote:
    "I've known people who have committed suicide, and my shock always reveals how little I knew about them."

    Gilbert is a great guy. Not what you'd expect him to be like IRL.
    This tribute shows a little of what he's really like.
    Brilliantly written.

    After you read that piece how can you question the person Robin Williams was?

    Amen. Good for Gilbert. Could you imagine Wiggy writing something like this about anyone besides himself?

    In honor of his passing, I'm going to put on a dress and go babysit some kids. It's the least I can do.

    Any comment from Artie? Maybe he didn't know Robin but I'm sure he could relate to the darkness.
