Hilareous

Greatly missed (Robin Williams) The Carol Burnett Show was the best of comedy. I loved Harvey Korman and Tim Conway
They made me laugh tears of laughter.

oh those two actors ! LOL

those two were such funny actors & when t.v. had something good to offer - coping mechanisms for so many people seemed to be the most popular shows - there's a time and a place for everything, and I still think those skills or coping mechanisms are the best to learn to get along in life. And they're all in the chumash. All of them. Those t.v. shows brought many lessons to life in a way non-Torah audiences relate to life.

some truth in the humor

Although Mark was hysterically socially inappropriate (reminds of some Asperger people), Carol greatly benefitted from allowing herself to truly express the grief she was stifling behind the social convention. Food for thought.

bereavement

I went to Aish a "mere" 35 yrs ago (!) and have worked in the field of bereavemetn counseling for many yrs. Tx for finding a clip which provides a practical (and certainly non-threatening) glimpse into the do's and dont's of providing heartfelt comfort. as we approach Rosh HaShaan, let's share a year of LIFE, please G-d.
