The Life Of Joan Rivers

Comedy is such an instrumental part of our existence.  Laughter truly is the best medicine.   If Hamas, Hitler, Mao and Stalin would have laughed more, they would have hated less.  Joan Rivers was far and away one of my favorite comedians.  For me, the only other comedians that were of the same caliber were  Greg Giraldo and George Carlin.    Fundamentally the question of our existence is if we left the world in a better place than before we entered it.   In a world devolving into the madness of the disconnected self, Joan is a reminder of how many make profoundly positive impacts on the world around them.  And how they do so by rejecting the dumbed-down ignorance of social conformity and political-correctness.

Another of my favorites, Camille Paglia, on Joan Rivers.
