R.I.P. Robin Williams, the creative's creative

I didn't know Robin Williams, but his work was pretty special for me personally. Good Morning Vietnam and Dead Poets Society were there at the very beginning of my understanding of war and life and death, and for that, I'm truly grateful. He didn't create those things himself, nobody does, but the soul of the story was in him, and his ability to take the madness of the mind and bring it alive through words was unique and unparalleled. Anyone who worked with him is singing his praises right now, and there's no more fitting tribute to the man than the body of work he left behind.
