Final Respect for Rodney Dangerfield.

I am sad to read that
Comedian Rodney Dangerfield Dies at 82 .
Rodney Dangerfield, the bug-eyed comic whose self-deprecating one-liners brought him stardom in clubs, television and movies and made his lament "I don't get no respect" a catchphrase, died Oct. 5 in Los Angeles. He was 82.

Dangerfield had fallen into a coma after undergoing surgery Aug. 25 to replace a heart valve. Publicist Kevin Sasaki said in a statement that Dangerfield suffered a small stroke after the operation and developed infectious and abdominal complications. He had emerged from the coma in the past week, Sasaki said

"When Rodney emerged, he kissed me, squeezed my hand and smiled for his doctors," Dangerfield's wife, Joan, said in the statement. The comic also is survived by two children from a previous marriage. (more...)

Rodney you will be sorely missed...
