Full story: Marin Independent Journal

WHATEVER the Tour of California prologue had to offer in Palo Alto on Sunday could not top the monologue delivered by Robin Williams at the team presentation and gala celebration on Friday night in Sausalito.

Robin Williams is a national treasure, and he gives of his talent to the Marin Community on a regular basis. Thanks.

Interesting aside from the Landis scandal. But, may I ask? What is the "bloody" IRAQ point?????????? Perhaps it's something GWB can tell us??? Regards Raymond

WHAT are you on about, cher ami?

He went and did a 'Troop Morale-building' tour... c'est tout.

Williams can take out any six French comedians with one lip tied behind his ear... heh heh...

You'd think by now people, even newspaper writers who ought to do even a bit of research, and marginally know about what they write, can get Phil Liggett's name spelled correctly. Bah!

.
Personally I can do without Robin Williams at bike racing events. It's all about him.

It may be about him but it is good to bring more attention to the sport. I don't cycle but I find it facinating. I also find the comedic comentary on Marin very funny. a fun and informative article . wish it talked more about the sport though.

Interesting behavior you project here Raymond.

If anyone here criticises the French government or ASO or UCI, etc, than you accuse us of being biased towards the French!

Yet Raymond, you criticise the US almost every week.

But, at least we Americans admit to having problems in Washington, DC.

Yet Raymond, you never criticise your own government and act like France is so perfect.

I also noticed that you never commented about the Arab terrorists killing their own people (men, woman & children) when I brought that situation up to you.

Just food for thought

Cheers
