    I'm kinda glad to hear he's not in the Purgatory of Dementia anymore. he deserved better and he'd had enough of this foul disease, I would say, even if Death was the only alternative.

    I know most of you saw many more hours of him than I did, but I was always bowled over by his basic sense of decency. He found ways of getting people to laugh and forget their troubles, but did so without putting women down or denigrating people for their religion or ethnic background or any of that kind of thing that other "comics" of his general era seemed to often do. I'd most closely associate him with Jonathan Winters in this way. While the humor may seem low brow or dumb to some TDPRI posters, maybe it reflects that basic fact that humankind is, after all, not that advanced in the first place. We're really simpletons. Tim just made us seem like good hearted simpletons - what's so wrong with that?
