I know what you mean, Stickler.  That's how I felt too.

 

One thing I hope though with bringing MI more to light because of his death, is that when people hear the word 'depression,' they automatically don't think suicide.  I would hope they would treat it as it is, and not a death sentence.

Here's a good article on Cracked about Why Funny People Kill Themselves.

 

 

Because Cracked is driven by an army of aspiring comedy writer freelancers, the message boards are full of a certain personality type. And while I don't know what percentage of funny people suffer from depression, from a rough survey of the ones I know and work with, I'd say it's approximately "all of them." So when I hear some naive soul say, "Wow, how could a wacky guy like [insert famous dead comedian here] just [insert method of early self-destruction here]? He was always joking around and having a great time!" my only response is a blank stare.

That's honestly the equivalent of "How can that cow be dead? She had to be healthy, because these hamburgers we made from her are delicious!"
