    Although I was just in diapers and much younger then you, I also remember her being on Carson and the family having several laughs. My classmates in preschool would talk about it the next day.

    A columnist in the New Yorker got it right about her: "Everyone who called her the Queen of Mean was missing the point: life is what’s mean, and she was here to let us know how funny that is."

    She called a spade a spade. So what? We need more of that instead of the PC crap.

    And she was self deprecating, similar to Rodney Dangerfield.

    I liked her.

    I heard a clip of her from probably 20 years ago. She was worried that she was doing too many offensive jokes about Elizabeth Taylor's weight. Guess Taylor heard about it and said she didn't care, as long as people were talking about her it was all good.
