RIP Jonathan

Jonathan Winters is gone. The man was, as someone remarked, a certifiable American treasure. And soooooo funny. He'll definitely be missed. But aren't we lucky to live when we don't have to depend on others telling us how great someone was, back in the day? Go to You Tube. See for yourself, if these aren't enough (and they wont' be):

I know everyone is showing this, but ... on the Jack Paar show, improvising with the barest of props, a simple stick.



And the airline pilot "A Man Under Pressure"

My father and I used to watched Jonathan Winters together on Jack Paar -- Winters was, along with the late Ernie Kovacs, one of my dad's two favorite comics of the era. In fact, even into the 1990s, we both adored Winters on the sitcom "Davis Rules," for which he won an Emmy. What a treasure he was!
