According to his memoir, this was one of Isaac Asimov’s favorite jokes; it seems particularly fitting today. Hat tip, author Kurtis Scaletta.

    Thank you for sharing. Many a truth is said in jest.

    Absolute tragedy. Good films such as Good Morning Vietnam or even Mrs. Doubtfire or Aladdin will now be viewed differently. I like that you covered this on this blog since the man was a great person overall. I’m not sure if he was a Mets fan or not, but here’s another photo of Robin in Mets gear http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/520228/mets-robin_williams.jpg.

    About two and a half weeks ago I’m up early on a Sunday morning and stumbled across one of those A&E biographies on Williams. Good enough for easy watching with a cup of coffee. Of course the show mentions Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, and the Fisher King. These are all movies I have never seen as I was busy watching Jumanji, Aladdin, and Mrs. Doubtfire at that time. Kids. And you know, those kids movies were all very good films for their genre, outstanding really.

    That day during commercials I started doing searches and decked up all three movies on my DVR, where they still sit today. So, with all due respect to the Mets, I might miss a few innings this week, as I have work to do.

    As a kid I loved Jonathan Winters, who might as well have been Williams biological father, and I consider Robin one of the most talented entertainers I have ever seen. The range to do the comedy he did and also do quality drama was remarkable.

    Rest in Peace.
