So Long, Mr. Winters

Two years and two days ago, I wrote an entry on one of my comedy heroes, a man who influenced my own brief attempt to do stand-up, and to this day the comic who has made me laugh harder than any other performer — and yes, that includes the Pythons and the Kids in the Hall. Now, I have to say goodbye. Jonathan Winters has died at the age of 87. Thanks for your work, sir — it made many of my days better than they would otherwise have been.
