R.I.P. Carl Reiner
« on: June 30, 2020, 11:03:31 AM »
Another comedy legend that couldn't get renewed for one more season:
Carl Reiner, the comedian, writer, director and actor whose contributions to the development of television comedy are rivaled by few others, died Monday night of natural causes at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 98.

Just three days before his passing, Reiner — the father of actor and director Rob Reiner — tweeted what now seems his public goodbye: “Nothing pleases me more than knowing that I have lived the best life possible by having met & marrying the gifted Estelle (Stella) Lebost – who partnered with me in bringing Rob, Annie & Lucas Reiner into this needy & evolving world.”

It is just the way it is, you understanding it doesn't concern me.

A national treasure for sure.

Hey, 98 ain't half-bad. That's a good, long life right there.
There is a preverb in Turkish:  "Do not think everybody have beard is your grandfather".

Never heard of him, but commiserations.
