Rest in Peace Richard Pryor: 1940-2005 - Michael - December 11th, 2005

Richard Pryor died of a heart attack today. He was 65 years old and not in the best of health. He made some good movies, he made some real dogs, but a lot of us enjoyed his work.

I once saw him in person when I was flying across the U.S. He took the same flight as me and he was past his entertainment days. The flight crew shielded him from the rest of the passengers.

My condolences to his friends and family.

Condolences. He was a rather gifted individual who made some poor choices at times, but ultimately turned his life into something worthwhile.

He will be greatly missed.

SNL mentioned it during their weekend update segment, a rare serious side. They showed a clip from the famous skit where Richard and Chevy Chase are going back and forth with the racial slurs. :laugh:
