A Milwaukee-based restaurant employee will never forget where he was when Robin Williams died. Why? Because he was in a Peter King tweet.
MILWAUKEE-Asked restaurant host: “God, did you hear about Robin Williams?” Host: “No.” Me: “Died. He killed himself.” Thought he would cry.

That, my friends, is a what you call getting the most of your 140 characters. The decision to write out the staccato dialogue was a weird choice. But that’s just one thing we think we think.
The good news is that the broken-up restaurant host will bounce back the moment he realizes he was the subject of an unauthorized short story capturing his most vulnerable moment.
Nothing more therapeutic than that.
