  1. Yes this is very sad news. But how many people knew that Rodney Dangerfield died the day after, like almost no one. One of the best comedians still got no respect after he was gone, that my friends is sad.

  2. i actually found out about rodney dangerfield before i heard about christopher reeves..

    just so you know, brian.

  3. hey rodney dangerfield was on the front page of the ny times, and had a section in the week in review thing this past sunday…
    lots of funny quotes. i really wasn’t exposed to him much at all until just now. kind of sad how i missed what seems to be really funny stuff, and now the man’s gone for good.

    chris reeve…i found out about it sunday night/monday morning. i was never really a fan of superman, and only saw fractions of maybe one of those movies, but he was still a great guy, and it’s really horrible that he was getting along and really making progress in getting over paralysis (and his support of the research to overcome it) and he just got struck down…

    so to wax concrete-bunker-tinfoil-hats,
    maybe it was an assasination…by, you know, crazy anti-choice x-tian conservative nutjobs…you know, because he supported stem-cell research, and all that jazz…

  4. I know this might upset most people But Reeves, the only thing he ever did Superman, and if he never had gotten parilyzed, he definitly wouldnt of been in the limelight these past few years.

  5. Doesn’t offend me at all. Doesn’t mean he didn’t do those things, and it doesn’t mean I wanted to be Rodney Dangerfield when I grew up. I’m not knocking Dangerfield mind you, he was wonderfully funny.

  7. What Brian said reminds me of (http://www.livejournal.com/users/tiresias2/9925.html) something a friend wrote a while back.

    But, in any case…

    ìNo man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.î – John Donne, poet (1573-1631)

  8. Here’s some trivia. Dangerfield’s I don’t get any respect line was inspired by the Godfather movies.
    Family members have to get respect, or else!

  9. er.

    i seem to be late.

    1. alex you never saw all the supermans? thats horrible.

    2. all i know of rodneydanger field besides he was a funny guy.. ladybugs.

    ladybugs vs. superman.

    i would have known about christopher reeves even if he wasnt a great advocate for his cause.

    both were good guys.

    just saying that christopher reeves was more famous than rodney dangerfield and the fact that he was paralyzed wasnt anything concerning that.

    in conclusion. i’m late. and don’t care to argue. i just thought of that. there is no arguement. i think.

    alex, you didnt see the superman movies? why did grow up watching them so much? and i also used to watch the supergirl movie alot too. she was his cousin. i also had super girl pajamas. there was an attached red cape.

    er.

    goodnight. i am tired.

  10. Tow Supermen dead in my lifetime. Thought this was interesting:

    Tom from Ohio: “Mr. Reeve was the second Superman actor to pass away during my life. I was nine when George Reeves, TV’s Superman in the 1950s, committed suicide. It was shocking. The actor who played my favorite hero had committed suicide because, being typecast, he couldn’t get other work. As I young boy, I didn’t understand depression’s burden. What a contrast in lives and deaths. Christopher Reeve’s body gave out. George Reeves’ heart and mind gave out. Each man’s acting gave me joy and a positive example that a hero is a human being in action, doing something.”
