The Cricket’s Daily 3: Mourning Robin Williams
This is the part of the blog where I usually say, "Here's what's being talked about in pop culture". But there's only one thing being talked about in pop culture today: The death of Robin Williams.
Here are some of the interesting things being written and spoken about Williams:
• Salt Lake Tribune TV critic Scott D. Pierce writes about meeting Williams last year.
• An appreciation by The New York Times' A.O. Scott.
• Hollywood celebrities took to Twitter to register their shock and sadness.
• The Boston park bench where Williams and Matt Damon filmed a major scene in "Good Will Hunting" became a makeshift shrine.
• Conan O'Brien learned of Williams' death mid-show Monday night, and he, Andy Richter and guest Will Arnett paid tribute on the air.
