Joan Rivers 1933-2014




After being rushed to hospital last week after her heart suddenly stopped beating during vocal chord surgery, Joan Rivers has been taken off life support. She was 81.

Joan had a long and distinguished comedic career spanning over 50 years, but for a youngster like me two roles stand out.

One was playing Dot Matrix in Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs.

The other – and by far most important role – was being Joan Rivers, passionate defender of Israel.

I get the feeling G-d decided to take Joan in after this, her finest moment.

May He comfort Joan’s family at this time.

Update: I just saw this now for the first time – language warning (hat tip: Arsen)
