An aside -- I remember going on a talent audition for Skip E. Lowe, who was trying to put together a weekend live variety show in Hollywood. This was back in the late 70's or early 80's. I played a song or two and he was singularly unimpressed. I should have done a standup routine, spouting off L. A. gas station prices instead!

Quite some years back, Saturday Night Live held a contest calld "Anyone Can Host," inviting one member of the public to host a show, if they could answer the question, "Why would you want to?" My submission was "So I can finally meet Don Pardo." It didn't win.

New Person to say farewell to: Michael Brown. Whatever he did or didn't do, he sure set Ferguson, MO on its ear.

I'm saddened to hear about Robin Williams, whose zany comedy was on display in movies like "Good Morning Vietnam" and "Mrs. Doubtfire" and on TV going all the way back to "Mork and Mindy"in the 1970s.

Hearing that he might have committed suicide, I can't help but wonder how much of his humor was a cover for depression. He would not be the first comedian who laughed on the outside while crying on the inside.

RIP, Robin Williams.
