"Groundbreaking Comedian Richard Pryor died Saturday of a heart attack, his wife told CNN. He was 65. Pryor, who had been ill with multiple sclerosis, died at Encino Hospital near Los Angeles, at 7:58 a.m. PT. Jennifer Lee Pryor tried to revive him before paramedics arrived and took him to the hospital, she said."
I agree with the fine sentiment expressed by gw. Not even multiple sclerosis could have silenced his unique brand of humor. Sadly, "the heart is a lonely hunter", and he shall be missed.

LOS ANGELES -
Richard Pryor, the groundbreaking comedian whose profanely personal insights into race relations and modern life made him one of Hollywood's biggest stars, died of a heart attack Saturday. He was 65.
Pryor died shortly before 8 a.m. after being taken to a hospital from his home in the San Fernando Valley, said his business manager, Karen Finch. He had been ill for years with multiple sclerosis, a degenerative disease of the nervous system.
RIP you funny guy. We will miss you. Michael Jackson won't.
