Gilda Radner's long goodbye  NOV 30 2012

Speaking of Bill Murray (because why would we ever want to stop speaking of him?), this story about the last time he saw Gilda Radner before she died is just so great and sad and wonderful. Makes me wanna laughcry.

The whole Monty Python group was there, most of us from [SNL], a lot of other funny people, and Gilda. Gilda showed up and she'd already had cancer and gone into remission and then had it again, I guess. Anyway she was slim. We hadn't seen her in a long time. And she started doing, "I've got to go," and she was just going to leave, and I was like, "Going to leave?" It felt like she was going to really leave forever.
