RIP Robin Williams

I won't write a monologue about suicide, or the torments of creative types.  The media and seemingly everyone on Facebook and Twitter have that covered.

I just want to join the thousands, perhaps millions of people, that today are thinking about how many emotions they felt watching Robin Williams.  Was there a character he didn't, or couldn't, portray?  Mork, Garp, John Keating, Genie.  He was a Julliard trained actor, he did Shakespeare and he did Disney.  And he did everything in between.  He did all of it exceptionally well.

Even things that the public, or the media, would characterize as a box office failure, displayed talent and genius.

I hate that he is gone.
