The news reports this evening say it was suicide, that he suffered from depression and lately it had been severe. He'd also had health problems and alcoholism.
I didnt really know of his problems - but it's not surprising to me. So many sucessful people have commited suicide. Now a great actor and comic has apparently taken his life.
You might think fame and fortune would cure your depression, but perhaps thats not the case for all who seek it.
If anyone could understand the struggle Robin faced, we should, as many of us live it every day.
