Blithe Spirit

Robin Williams was found dead yesterday. That doesn’t seem real. It seems impossible that such a force could be stopped.

I am angry, not because he died, but because of the atrocious obituary found on CNN.com. It mentioned the long line of comics who also died from suicide or drug overdose. It talked a little about his genius and his career. And CNN made his death seem pedestrian, something Robin Williams never was.

If you want to read a better farewell, go to Robin Williams takes on the Actor’s Studio, or read the New York Times tribute, or this one: Huffington Post eulogizes Robin Williams.

Rest in peace, Robin. Rest now, in peace.
