I was shocked as most of you were when I heard the news of Robin Williams death.  Such a sad end to a brilliant career.  Addiction and mental illness is no joke.  I have a lot of memories of Robin.  Growing up when I did I actually remember watching Mork and Mindy.  People forget that is how he got started.  Comedically he was a genius.  But my favorite Robin Williams performance remains in Good Will Hunting.  He was brilliant in it.  Go back and watch it.  He deserved the Oscar.  But my strongest memory will be my parents watching Good Morning Vietnam for the first time.  I remember tears streaming down my Dad's face.  I didn't really get it at the time, but as I got older I came to appreciate it.  Here is the scene that had my folks laughing so hard it hurts even more knowing that he is gone...
