RIP, Joan Rivers

I always found her funny, albeit a tad, um, edgey.

Oh, jeez, I'm so sorry to hear that. I thought she was pretty funny, too. Her daughter must be devastated.

She was quite a character to be sure and I feel for her daughter and grandson. When she was moved out of ICU yesterday, I knew the time had come for her to be set free.

I'm seriously wondering why someone who could afford the best medical care, would choose a clinic rather than a hospital for a serious procedure? The way I understand it, they didn't have the equipment to save her, and by the time the paramedics arrived too much time had passed for the chance of a good recovery.

She probably did it on the advice of her doctor. I've had those types of procedures at my GI doctor's endoscopy suite, but it's right across the street from a hospital. He employs an anesthesiologist there at the clinic.

She was looking very spritely on QVCUK before Christmas. I didn't find her very funny (but then, I have a very strange SoH) but she was a game girl..

That's too bad. I remember watching her back when she was a regular on Johnny Carson. I don't think I've seen her on anything in the last 10 years. Maybe I'm just not watching the right channels.

I enjoyed her off the cuff remarks, she made me laugh!

Her home reminded me of Liberace.
