    I was thinking it was one of those false reports but it's on all the major outlets like CNN and MSN. Sad. And they are saying it's a Suicide?. Don't get that
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    It's apparent suicide.

    He has been battling depression for years, and he had a very serious drug addiction.

    Didn't know that. Goes to show you a guy like that so funny and great actor I'm assuming he didn't want for money yet was depressed. Shows money isn't always all you need

    Yes, you're right.
    He spoken openly about it too. It's really sad to see someone who brought so much joy, energy, and hard work to have to suffer like that.

    Hollywood isn't all that it's hyped up to me.

    It is a really tough cross to bear. We really have no idea how complicated mental illness can be. We do know that many of the great comedians struggle with it for their entire life including one of Robin's great mentors Jonathan Winters. As gifted a comedian as he was, I loved him as an actor even more. His performance in Dead Poets Society was spectacular. Gonna miss him.........
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Just an interesting tidbit I learned in one of my psychology courses.
    Humor can be seen as a defense mechanism, transferring unwanted thoughts into a more acceptable light.
