Today I learned that Richard Pryor has passed away at the age of 65.

He will be missed.

He was a great comic.

Rest in peace.

He wrote some great material, albeit with vulgarity, but he knew what funny was.

It was the first thing I heard when I turned on the news right after I got up last night. (10:00 PM---I work the night shift.) It was quite a while before I heard that Eugene McCarthy had also died that day...and I suppose some of you science fiction types have heard that Bob Sheckley died yesterday...
