A nice article in Variety.
"The key to permanent change is keeping our minds in the present, and on the next moment. We can control the now, and the next momentóbut not the past. We move forward into happiness by shifting our perspective to a mind-set of opportunity, in the here and now."

You should read the Courage to change by Dennis Wholley. It has Sid's story on his addictions. What a remarkable man.

RIP Sid Caesar, Mr. Show of Shows. What a comedy legacy: Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Neil Simon. A hint of Caesar in almost all our laughter.

I remember the show too. I didn't know he was an addict. RIP dear Sid.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

Had the honor of watching him perform live in the '90's. Already way past his prime, but what a class act. Thanks, Sid.
