    That is the way to be funny after such a tragedy. I remember it so clearly and it did make me laugh. There is a line between being funny and just being crass jerk.

    Amy Schumer, Whitney Cummings, Louis CK, and Dave Chapelle are all examples of comedians who can take horrible situations and write great jokes about them. Patrice O'Neal was another master of it. Greg Girlado and Jeff Ross are both cited on comedic circles for doing amazing sets about 9/11 right after 9/11 (Giraldo the night of I believe) in New York City. That brand of humor is not for everyone. But each of them proves that no subject is off the table and that anything can be joked about.

    TMZ is reporting that Kasey Kasems body is missing and so his wife. She took off with it so they couldn't do an autopsy. He deserves so much better than that

    Kasey's gone now & is at peace, but I can't help but feel that the authorities need to step in & do a full investigation into his death, her bizarre actions, including a full autopsy.
    Something is just very wrong with all of this.

    I always thought Jean was a bit of a nutter, but in a kooky, harmless way. Clearly, she's full blown crazy.

    It makes you wonder what Kasey may have gone through looking out for her before he got sick ...

    "Full blown crazy" is a good start. But, frankly, I'm wondering if there are any words that exist at ALL in the English language for Jean Kasem's obviously strained --- shall we say --- mental state.

    Yep, Casey's gone.

    At rest?

    Nope. Don't think so.

    I DO hope --- when they find her and his body --- the authorities have a proper, in-depth, extensive autopsy performed. I also hope that Jean winds up being committed for life --- or at least the next 50-or-so years, if possible --- to some mental facility somewhere.

    THAT is where she oh-so-obviously needs to be, I think.

    It's very, very sad and heartbreaking that all of this lunacy didn't end with Casey's last breath.

    He ABSOLUTELY deserves much better than this current state of affairs.

    Apparently there is trouble in paradise with JayZ and Beyonce. I found this interesting.
