1 Gretschrocker 3 weeks ago Sad day for those who enjoyed his racism, blatant insults of blacks, Irish, Italians etc. However many of us found him offensive. My grandmother said she dated him in the 1940's but couldn't stand it when he called her names in front of Sammy Davis, Jr and Dean Martin. So she dumped him and started dating Joey Bishop and Sid Caesar. Later in life she refused to eat Caesar salad, so I concluded that something was amiss.
