Happy Birthday, Cos!

Today is Bill Cosby's birthday. Some of my greatest childhood laughs came from listening to Cosby's standup albums. No one ever told a story with more richness and humanity. Plus, I grew up loving I Spy.

Cosby was the first celebrity entertainer I ever saw perform live (at Charles Schulz's Redwood Empire Ice Arena, in the late '70s). And I respect his continued stance in favor of education, clean humor, and personal responsibility. (Except for that whole illegitimate daughter business...Fat Albert says, "Hey, hey, hey -- that's not okay.")

Thanks for the laughs, Cos. Hope you have a great day. Watch out for snowballs.
