Don Rickles RIP

No one lives forever -- except, perhaps, Shirley MacLaine. This is where we ring down the final curtain for Filmdom's finest.

Don Rickles RIP

Oh great, so today it's Rickles.

In this era of political "correctness" and the thin-skinned inability of much of the population to laugh at itself, some had come to feel that Don Rickles was out of line, but what do they know, they're just a bunch of hockey pucks. Don Rickles was funny as hell, and he took the mickey out of lot of celebrity stuffed shirts, and they loved it.

Here's a Dick Cavett appearance where, like many Cavett interviews, some genuine questions get genuine answers, but Rickles still gets in some good ones:

And apparently, under his Rickles exterior, offstage he was a really nice guy.
