Recalling Robin Williams

Several readers shared thoughts on the late, great Robin Williams.

From John Beach: “Just too say how sad I am that he’s gone, and that he had so much going for him. He was just so funny in all that he did.”

From Jan Bandura: “If you can, find a copy of Robin Williams’ appearance on BRAVO’s ‘Inside the Actors Studio.’ Williams was filmed for eight hours and was cut to two hours for airing. His comedy and spontaneity were remarkable. One student in the audience laughed so hard he (I think) tore a muscle in his side. It is one funny show that displays his comedic talent at it’s best. He will be missed.”

It’s been most interesting how Williams’ story has morphed from heartfelt appreciations of his talent and work into examinations of the mental-health system, the moral implications of suicide and even how the media covers celebrity deaths. Indeed, he touched many things.
