How could Rodney authenticate himself in email?
I hope he'll be OK.

Now maybe he'll finally get some respect.

[Sorry, someone had to do it.]

I got nothing but respect for the guy. I hope he gets better.

He's 80? You've gotta be kidding me. I thought he was in his 60s at most. So, how old does that make Bob Hope?

Bob Hope is 98 years old.

do you lose points if you put him in your death pool after the heart attack?

Hey, Whitey! Where's your hat?

His website is perhaps one of the best looking official comedian websites I've ever seen. Not THE best, but it's got a party color scheme, simplistic functional navigation, it's informative, entertaining, cute.. there are mildly annoying audio embeds, but they're not intrusive. And they're Rodney! So his webiste should be mildly annoying. He's turned mildly annoying into a career - hell, an artform!
A guy of his generation being this 'Net savvy? Damn, if I wasn't a fan of his before, I am now.

Here's a brief update on Dangerfield's condition - still hospitalized, undergoing tests. And a classic RD one-liner:

"I went to the doctor because I'd swallowed a bottle of sleeping pills. My doctor told me to have a few drinks and get some rest!"
