Bozo; Dead


LOS ANGELES – Bozo the Clown (Larry Harmon), who delighted children for more than a half-century, dead at 83. "I felt if I could plant my size 83AAA shoes on this planet, people would never be able to forget those footprints," he said (before he died). Mr. Harmon had licensed and trained more than 200 Bozos.

Meanwhile, I have been spending literally dozens of hours straight the past few days revisiting comic George Carlin's amazing archive of work...from his last show on HBO to his albums around 40 years ago. A hero of mine, I have tried to learn to be funnier from him.

I too have been revisiting Carlin. Especially his "Stuff" monologue. Very appropriate for my business.

As far as Bozo... I hate clowns.
