Robin Williams

How is it possible that he's gone? I was shocked yesterday to read it. Shocked doesn't even begin to cover it, actually. The words comic genius are tossed around so liberally, but in his case they are so true.

The thing is, depression is a bitch. It lies to you. It tells you it's true and no one can convince you otherwise. As I wrote on Facebook yesterday, I am so sorry no one could reach Robin Williams in time. I feel for his family, his friends, his fans. I am certainly among the latter.

Adam and I saw him at Bimbo's in 2006, I think. Or 2007. Not sure. I don't laugh easily. I howled that night. He was one funny son of a bitch. Irreverent and yet so lovable. There won't be another like him.

RIP, sweet man.
