"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
A great career. Over here we saw him in Beach Blanket Bingo in an unusual role, and Get Smart and similar stuff where he brought enormous personality and glimpses of a side of Hollywood we knew little about. Because he was just outside our perception I don't think we had his TV shows, only if he appeared say on Dean Martin who we knew better. But looking back, wow Rickles was in lots of stuff and left a strong impression.
It's always especially sad news when one of the greats leaves. Though he may be imitated, he can never be matched. He set a very high bar. Mr. Rickles excelled at everything he did as an entertainer. It'll be interesting in Heaven. St. Peter, Archangels, and angels better watch out;
