The world lost a giant yesterday.
We lost him not because of a car crash or a shooting or cancer, but because something was wrong inside his head. So wrong, he decided he was unable to live on earth any longer.
This wealthy, famous, insanely talented human being, who gave hundreds of millions (billions?) of people joy through his characters, jokes and antics over 40 hilarious years, was himself alone in a dark world he couldn’t get out of.
That was a terrible place for him to be, and it is a terrible thing for us to now know.
