Will we ever laugh again?

I was in elementary school when “Mork & Mindy” was a hit. Nanu nanu? Not for me. Maybe I was turned off by the rainbow suspenders. 

Over the years my dislike of Robin Williams’ brand of frenetic, dated humor only grew. I have even less tolerance for his mawkish turns in “Dead Poets Society” and “Patch Adams,” which, according to one critic, “Indulges to the hilt every obnoxious, hyperactive,…

Oh, how I’ve dreaded this day, among the most holy on the hipster calendar.  It’s Christmas morning for Europhiles, who, as I write this, are summoning every ounce of faux passion within their eager-to-please-the-right-people beings in preparation for Day 1 of the World Cup.
