Tinker Posted April 28, 2018 Share Posted April 28, 2018 Funny Man I write with sadness of the demise of a funny man. In clubs, in concert, on the small screen, he warmed hearts and made us laugh. His humor sprung from common sense and fairness. He was a beacon for education and bettering oneself. His light shone brightly for millions across the globe. But everyone has a dark side, shadows created in secret, nourished by self doubt, selfishness, lust or greed. We can reject it, we can lock it away or we can indulge it. Fueled by adulation, fame and fortune, "America's Dad" unleashed his darkness and allowed it to snuff his brilliance. I abhor the destruction in its wake, I grieve the loss. ~~Judi Van Gorder Bill Cosby found guilty of 4 counts of sexual assault. Many more still in the wind.
