Robin Williams: A special light goes out

Robin Williams was a brilliant entertainer. That is no easy trick in any age, but especially in one like ours that has so many venues, so much noise, so many people clamoring for our attention.

It is easy to apply one’s own frame of reference to someone like Williams. He made us laugh, cry and think, and therefore we assume we know the guy and know that since we like his acting, he must be someone we would like in person.

A lot of people are shocked and saddened today by the loss of a man few really knew. Whatever his private troubles and turmoil, Robin Williams gave millions of people many hours of entertainment and escape from their own trials and tribulations, and for that we thank him and mourn his untimely passing.
