Subject: RE: Folklore: Gallows Humor-laughing at death/disease
Take another listen to "Rosin the Beau" some time. Here's a fellow facing death with a grin and a challenge to "That old tyrant." I hold with the proposition that we all face times when all that's left to us is to laugh - or sing. It may be the greatest gift. I've known quite a few in my life, now gone, who followed that lead.
