    That's what I heard on the news, and they had experts who said exactly that - a drug addict would simply overdose, not attempt to cut his wrists and not hang himself from a bedroom door. Williams demons had to be related to depression.

    Sounds like something he would say. Apparently Limpdong needs some attention. Ratings must be down. Honestly, what a hate monger he is.

    Thing about it is, I bet it pissed off a lot of his listeners. Williams was loved by lefties and righties. Look no further than this thread. You can't deny genius. It doesn't take a political lean to recognize talent. And besides, Williams was one of the good guys. He gave till it hurt.

    It's very difficult being as hyper a person as he was in this society, even if you're wildly adored (by millions who don't really know you) and wealthy enough to "get help". I'm not as far as he is, but even still, it's a struggle. For a 6 minute bit on a talk show, RW was adorable and we all loved him. That's how people that have to deal with me for only 10-30minutes think of me, "delightful". After that, I'm still being me, but everyone around is showing signs of tiring. They tell me it's like being around a live wire for too long, I exhaust them. So if I do that, RW is like me on steroids,.... his personal relationships may not have been as we all imagine they'd be with someone so funny and entertaining as he was.

    I know that I am a jerk... but kids are getting beheaded by ISIS, not to mention HAMAS, the kidnapped girls by Boka Raham, homeless people... forgive me if I don't give a **** (much less a huge thread) about Williams. Great "actor". Good. He made me laugh. Cool

    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was a classmate of his.

    Jesus, I can't imagine the energy if they were in the same room. Poor teacher.

    Saddened by the loss of Redwood HS classmate Robin Williams, one of the all-time greats. My favorite standup of his: How the Scottish invented Golf (Robin Williams - Live on Broadway) - YouTube

    Obviously other people do care. Why you felt the need to share is beyond me.

    There's always gotta be one.

    One can simultaneously be concerned about other world events AND take the time to mourn a well-liked, well-respected artist like Robin Williams.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    that's not being a jerk, it's just "other focused"

    people grieve over Robin Williams because he is perceived as a member of their tribe and he touched their lives in a measurable way (made them laugh, made them cry, made them reflect etc)

    some kid half way around the world, is not perceived as a tribe member and their suffering and death is for the most part, not witnessed...it is an unknown

    it's the way tribes have worked from the beginning of time, few worry about a death "over there, amongst them"

    Hopefully more than one will emerge...

    Men can't multi-task...

    The "tribe"? What the hell? I think that you are trying a little too hard at playing psychologist.
