Tuesday Open Thread

August 12, 2014

So many of us were left reeling by the news of Robin Williams’ suicide. Because I first saw it reported on social media, my first instinct was to think (and hope) it was a hoax. That such a gifted comedian could be so tortured just doesn’t seem to compute.

I was left thinking of his memorable performances. My favorites were in The Birdcage and Good Will Hunting.

I found this tweet to be the most poignant. May he rest in peace.

What’s on your mind today?
