    • After days of intense speculation about Robin Williams's private struggles in the wake of his suicide, his widow, Susan Schneider, on Thursday made a stunning revelation: the comic had recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

    M. J. Fox and Muhammed Ali have Parkinson and neither of them seem suicidal. Robin Williams could have gone out to Branson, Mo and worked. Bill Cosby, Jim Belushi and Yakov Smirnoff are currently there. You put a show together and end up with some decent income. Look at David Brenner before he passed way. His popularity had waned but he was still doing gigs. Instead of headlining in Las Vegas you work the Orleans Hotel and Casino. You do shows at Indian casinos around the country like Joan Rivers.
    Joan has no problem taking any gig. Jerry Lewis might be a creep but in his heyday Dean and Jerry were one of the biggest acts in the country. They were making huge money. As Jerry's career wound down he jobs wherever he could find them. Depression is a serious illness and along with Parkinson's it probably tough but to just give up is a joke.

    I believe he also had a short attention span.
