I wish everyone could afford a stem cell transplant when they are in need of it. Not just people who make way too much money for acting like they are someone who doesn't exist.

He is a wonderful man. About 20 years ago when I was in college, I was in a book store and, unbeknownst to me, a creepy guy was trailing me. Gene Wilder was in the store and saw what was happening and came over and stopped the guy and had him removed from the store, and stuck around to be sure the guy was gone. Not a lot of people would have gotten involved...
