"As brutal as his remarks could be, they rarely left a mark. (“I’m not really a mean, vicious guy,” he told an interviewer in 2000.) Sidney Poitier was said to have once been offended by Mr. Rickles’s racial jokes. But in “Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project,” a 2007 documentary directed by John Landis, Mr. Poitier sang Mr. Rickles’s praises.

Recalling the first time he saw Mr. Rickles perform, Mr. Poitier said: “He was explosive. He was impactful. He was funny. I mean, outrageously funny.”"

I was just saying the other night that no one dies anymore. They just get more cosmetic surgery.  I used to dismiss him as just another d+head but in retrospect we know now he was kidding in comparison to the genuine article such as Jerry Lewis.  Today's d+heads have none of the heart he actually had. RIP Don R.

Leave it to a pair of bass players to be always late but never in doubt.

At least one OLD bass player.  I probably posted this last year too.  :confused:
