Tuesday 8-12-14 Recap!

Robin Williams was found dead in his home near San Francisco yesterday morning.  He was only 63.  Police suspect suicide by asphyxia.  In other words, he suffocated himself.  It's not clear how.  Robin's publicist issued a statement saying that he had been, quote, "battling severe depression of late."  And his wife Susan issued a statement saying, quote, "This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings.  I am utterly heartbroken.  "On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief.  As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.  Robin battled with drug and alcohol addiction for years, and recently went back to rehab to, quote, "fine-tune" his sobriety.

My favorite Robin role was, of course, in the Birdcage:
