She was a hoot. A smart lady who blazed a trail for women.
Yesterday, Phyllis Diller died.
I did not know her personally or follow her movements too closely, yet when the news of her passing was announced on the radio, I shouted “No!”. I remember her from when I was a kid– her dry delivery and over-the-top look. The fact that she found her way onto Scooby Doo cemented her status as a star in my kid universe.
So long, Phyllis… thanks for the laughs and making it look easy.
