  1. Greetings. Thank you for sharing this beautiful tribute about a great man. There is a relatively easy way to create an mp3. You can play the current recording “into “Otter.ai. Otter.ai is a free, cloud-based transcription service. The transcription can then be edited. You can export the transcript in multiple textual formats, as well as as an audio file—in mp3 format. If you need any assistance, please feel free to contact me. Kind regards, Diane in Upstate NY

  2. My dream up here in Chico, California, was to someday ask Ed Asner to marry me – because of his political beliefs and actions. I’m glad so many Democratic Socialists are winning elections around the country. We sorely need their voices. I’m proud to say, Act Blue religiously takes $6.60 a month from my credit card for DSA…. and has been for about 10 years.

  3. Those close to him would tell you that Ed Asner had some serious character flaws.

    ‘Do as I say, not as I do’, could have been his motto.

    1. @ Boss: Liar. Everyone who worked with him declared him a magnificent human being. I have never read or heard of a single negative comment about him. And I have known him for 40 years. You have violated a Cardinal comment rule. Lying without offering a Shred of evidence to support your lie.

      Disgusting. You are now moderated.

      1. Cheating on your wife, knocking up your mistress, denying paternity.

        Your hero, not mine.

        Hypocrisy is disgusting.

        1. @ Boss: Before I ban your sorry ass I’m going to reply to your defaming of the dead. Ed Asner had an affair. OMG! No one in the history of the universe has ever had one, right? And he fathered a child out of wedlock. That’s never happened before either, has it.

          And he paid off his mistress’ $300K condo mortgage and paid her $2.100 a month child support. And in what way is it nefarious to uphold a commitment to a child you fathered? Oh and while we’re at it let’s add that this child had autism and as a result, Ed became involved in autism charities. Sounds totally evil to me.

          Not to mention this happened 35 years ago.

          You are despicable. Worse than anything Ed Asner ever did. I will have to fumigate the threads after you leave.

          1. Worse than any moral lapse, Ed Asner was a ‘9/11 Truther’, which means he believed that the United States government murdered 3,000 of her own citizens for profit.

            Imagine you lost someone dear on 9/11, and some Hollywood crank is telling you that the departed was murdered by the government.

            Where’s the humanity?

            And than there’s Mr. Asner’s strident defense of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal, who was found laying wounded, wearing an empty shoulder holster, Jamal’s pistol with five empty shells, lying next to him and next to the cop he executed, shot five times, once between the eyes.

          2. @ Lyin’ Lion of Zion: When you’re dead I hope every stupid thing you’ve done and said is used to tarnish what little reputation you have left. You’re repulsive and now moderated.

          3. @ Richard

            You and Asner are nearly identical. Small wonder you admire him so.

            You two both ‘love humanity and hate people’.
            Worse, you both think you’re holier than thou, bearing the torch of Truth to enlighten the dark.
            What Narcissism and insecurities led you both there?

          4. @ Lyin’ Lion: I’m honored that you placed me in the same company as Ed Asner. Truly honored.

            “Hate people?” No. Hate injustice. Hate racism. Hate apartheid. Hate intolerance. All values you represent in spades. It is you who hate people. Love one set of people: Judeo-Supremacists. But hate virtually anyone else who stands in their way.

            As for narcissism and insecurities: until you have your psychology degree I’d suggest you hold off on the drugstore analysis. It’s pathetic.

            It’s a hallmark of cheap ideologues to insult their target with ad hominem attacks rather than engage in substance–because you have no substance.

            Next comment of yours that features b* like this will be your last. Make sure your comments are on topic and deal directly with the post. Taking potshots at me will get you banned in a heartbeat.
