    And will it become a nationwide bestseller. Will Robin become more famous in her death than life. Will a marketing company buy the rights to Robin's name and sell items like the Quivers Juicer, The ROQ coffee enema travel pac.

    I think the term you're seeking is "humorlessly"

    Oh yeah, people will rush out to buy a health book written by a woman who died of cancer.

    When will Howard address Robin's impending demise?

    When she shuffles off this mortal coil will he just ignore it and pretend like she was never even on the show....like Artie when he turned himself into a human pincushion?

    Change the book title to "go gentle into that good night", record an Oprah interview ala Yul Brynner cigarette ad and credit Dr Sarno for killing another one.

    I don't think even Howard could pull that off. It's one thing to erase Artie, another to try to erase Robin.

    I guess Robin's mole removal was not successful.

    the show is certainly post-humorusly.

    and no, i can't imagine they would sell anywhere near enough to cover costs. they'll write it off as some such thing or whatnot (sorry, i ain't no tax scientist) and destroy them. they would just be throwing more good money after bad by paying all the costs associated with releasing it for sale. i'm guessing they kinda wish they could just do that now and get out from under this gigantic turd, but they gotta wait robin out. anyone know how many they have printed, sitting in boxes?

    Yes, and I have the medical records to prove it.

    Howard's said several times that he couldn't continue to do the show without Robin.
    What are the chances that he's been "clandestinely" drugging her and putting her into contact with carcinogens so that he can gracefully exit his contract early?

    In the real world: if Robin was terminal ill the book release would be pushed forward not back.

    Just look at the Steve Jobs book. It was released 6 months earlier the scheduled. They tried to release it before his death. Not after.

    Isn't that one of the things Michael Landon did shortly before he died?

    All true, but there were millions of people who cared about Steve Jobs.

    Why I believe the cancer angle is phony: black people don't have that work ethic.
