I often wonder, 'What managed to take away our ability to laugh at ourselves?' I believe, 'we,' let it happen, when we got so busy keeping up with technology, and the dollar, humor no longer had a nook in our hearts. I used to dislike this lilt, when I didn't think it possible to close the 'Book of Clowns,' but now that it is a 'dirge,' Frank's words make perfect sense; sad to say. aaarrrggghhh...

If you view, as one of the 'last dinosaurs,' like me, have a tissue handy. You will be saddened.


There is a poetry in this presentation, that can only be 'felt,' as there are no words available to express, especially, perhaps, to the young.
