Our Gilda Radner tribute got some decent attention via social media Friday: It got 24 shares on Facebook, beating out all our Friday stories (even our photo tribute to Macho Man Randy Savage, which got only three Facebook shares and three retweets).
It was touching to see that after 22 years, people are still interested in this comedy pioneer. But more touching were the comments left on our Facebook page.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
