Why do they call it "rush hour" when nothing moves? - Robin Williams
Still trying to absord the loss of Robin Williams, who reportedly took his own life in early August.
He was one of the few entertainers I looked forward to seeing in a movie or as a guest on a talk show.
Robin's rapid fire silliness and his deep range of impersonations were legendary, and won't be equalled. Ever.
It was the wise talk host who would just let Robin be Robin, allowing his stream-of-comedy to run its course, TV commercials be damned.
Williams' stand-up specials were, for me, appointment television.
About a week before he died, I had watched "Mrs. Doubtfire" where he donned an old woman's garb as a disguise to see his children.
The list of his film credits is impressive and it's hard to choose my favorite. "Birdcage" was inventive while "Good Morning Vietnam" showcased his acting skills.
Want creepy? Watch "One Hour Photo."
Guess nobody will fully understand why Robin had to leave us, but we are better for having had him in our lives.
His fans are sad, but when we recall his humor and his talent, one day we will remember to laugh again.
