Such sad news, without a doubt one of my favorite actors and comedians. He will be missed by many.

RIP Robin; you gave us so much. Nanu Nanu.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

I am not shocked. I am saddened but shocked I sadly am not. Way too many have gone down this road either quickly or slowly as he did. Often the pain that drives one to greatness is the very thing that is the root cause here. John Candy, Richard Jenny, Belushi, Farley and a crowded list of famous and not so famous have had this affliction. Comedy can be a sad business.

"'You look at the world and see how scary it can be sometimes and still try to deal with the fear," he told the AP in 1989. "Comedy can deal with the fear and still not paralyze you or tell you that it's going away. You say, OK, you got certain choices here, you can laugh at them and then once you've laughed at them and you have expunged the demon, now you can deal with them. That's what I do when I do my act.'"

As Danny said, I am not shocked by this at all. It's the nature of the disease. It may seem paradoxical, but I think that's because people tend not to really look beyond the surface. Robin obviously was a man who thought about things, whose mind worked overtime even, perhaps. Those who have seen the dark tend to have an appreciation for the light.

It's too bad that society is still so afraid of mental diseases and struggles. It's getting better, but the stigma is still huge.
I'm sorry he was suffering so.

And Robin, I hope I haven't offended you with my psychoanalysis, LOVE and PEACE to you and to your family and friends and those who appreciated you. We'll remember you. Perhaps Mork is part of the reason my favorite Scrooge scene entails, "I must stand on my head... I MUST stand on my head!"

Why would somebody who as so loved, admired and successful choose to end his own life? That's crazy! I mean, wasn't there anybody to keep an eye on him and make sure he was going to be alright?

I don't think that anyone thought there was a pressing need to keep an eye on him.

It just goes to show that some problems are far more serious than what they might seem or appear to others. You know, you just kinda felt somebody should have been around to make sure he was going to be OK. I guess I am lucky in that regard that my family makes sure I am OK. My wife is awesome in that regard. Yet, here is Robin Williams who is loved and admired and has nobody to look out for him. What is this world coming to?

General, a disease that turns one against himself is a dangerous one, indeed. He's the only one who's there 24/7/365. No one else can match that.

Lots of us go through life without anyone to look after us 24/7. I certainly don't want a "keeper" to look after me.

Even a keeper couldn't guarantee his survival. Why look to blame someone, General?

It is a disease. Blame and judgment have no place here. Neither does ignorance. Please refrain general. You seem to understand little of the demons which are involved.

I have lost more friends than I care to remember to this demon. It has many faces and the very nature of it causes one not to seek help and to act in ways that are self destructive. Please refrain from nonsensical posts such as "that's crazy".
