Jonathan Winters

Jonathan Winters, resigned from life at age 87 yesterday, was one of the funniest men I ever saw. There was a time when I'd change my plans to avoid missing one of his TV appearances. When I started this blog on 15 November 2009, I paid tribute to J.W. by choosing the URL That came from a Winters routine in which he referred to "the great Trashy Toad of the Swamp." Guru and I were watching TV together the night one of his "characters" spoke the line. It broke us up, and stuck with me for decades.

And Limbaugh lives on.
