It's Always Something

 Coming off the heals of my Gilda Radner memorial post, I was crushed to read that Tig Notaro -- with whom I fell in love after hearing her tell the story of her unconventional relationship with Taylor Dayne during "This American Life Live" -- has been diagnosed with breast cancer. It's the latest blow to the funniest woman in comedy today, following the accidental death of her mother and bacterial infection in her digestive tract that left her hospitalized and down 30 pounds. Read about she announced the news in a stand-up gig that left the audience simultaneously laughing and crying in a way that you thought was merely a figure of speech HERE.
