R.I.P. Phyllis Diller
For a generation of us, Phyllis Diller was the funniest lady around. Waaaay before Joan Rivers, Roseann Barr or Chelsea Handler, it was Phyllis and her razor sharp wit. Her longtime manager, Milton Suchin, says Diller died Monday morning in her sleep. She had survived a near-fatal heart attack in 1999. Phyllis led the way in a profession that was nothing short of “The Good Ole Boys” club, and won. She was 95 years old, and still cracking jokes till the end. R.I.P. Phyllis, and thanks for all the laughs.
