Rest In Peace Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers has died, as you recall she stopped breathing during an endoscopy last week. One tweet I read said at the time, "At least she died doing something she loved." A joke I'm sure Joan would have appreciated.


Comedian and entertainer Joan Rivers died on Thursday at the age of 81.

"My mother's greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon," her daughter Melissa said in a statement.

On Tuesday, the family confirmed she was on life support at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan after going into cardiac arrest last Thursday.

1 Sorry to see her go. She was Great! Especially her ability to tell off numbskulls.

2 Did she die from an accident, natural causes, or was she murdered after the comments she made about Israel, the Palestinians, and the Obama's?

3 I like her humor. Yes indeed it's too bad she's gone.

Something went wrong when she went to a doctor's office for some minor procedure.

4 May her blessed memory keep us laughing for generations to come. She was a Mensch.

5 Can you imagine what she and Robin Williams are up to now that they are together in that twinkly, star studded place, whatever it is, for good people? Got to listen to some Willie Nelson/Johnny Cash, the Highway Men while I light a candle and sip a touch of Southern whiskey in her memory.

6 A late friend of mine sent me an E-mail where he said he nearly pissed his
pants laughing at something she did a few years ago.

She comes on stage (Or to an interview) with a small group of minority kids
in tow. She then says she picked them up a yard sale at Brad and Angelina's house!

She never lost it, even near the end:
