R.I.P. Joan Rivers
Comedian Joan Rivers, famous for those trademark words, "Can we talk?" is dead at age 81. Rivers went into cardiac arrest while undergoing a minor outpatient surgical procedure on her vocal chords on August 28. Emergency efforts to save her life proved unsuccessful. News reports indicate that an investigation is underway to determine her cause of death. I frankly thought she was a dead woman walking the moment she spoke publicly about her belief that President Barack Obama is gay and that First Lady Michelle Obama is transgender in response to a reporter's question about her officiating a gay wedding ceremony in New York. Joking or not, The One can't be publicly humiliated without consequences. That's tantamount to crossing The Omen's Damien Thorn.
