Don Rickles, lightning-fast launcher of comic insults, dies at 90 - Washington Post

Saturday, April 08, 2017

He especially delighted in tweaking the rich and mighty and became renowned for his biting performances at celebrity roasts.“The bigger a person is,” Mr. Rickles told the Newark Star-Ledger in 1993, “the more pleasure I take in knocking them down a notch.”At a tribute to Clint Eastwood, Mr. Rickles said, “Clint, I’m sorry, but I just gotta say what’s on everybody’s mind here tonight: You’re a terrible actor.”While filming “Casino,” Mr. Rickles decided to needle the film’s star, Robert De Niro, who had twice won Academy Awards. “They warned me what a serious guy De Niro is,” Mr. Rickles told the New York Daily News. “They warned me not to make jokes. So the third day of shooting, I looked him straight in the face and told him: ‘I can’t work with you. You can’t act.’ The guy fell on the floor. He didn’t stop laughing for 18 weeks. Scorsese fell on the floor too, but he’s so small we couldn’t find him.”Mr. Rickles developed a persona that was a carefully crafted combination of cocksure wiseguy, playground bully and naughty, insecure child who just pulled the dog’s tail. In the 1950s, he was working in Washington at a cramped strip club called the Wayne Room when he hit on a formula that became his stock-in-trade: He became a heckler from the stage. “The place was like a hallway,” he recalled in a 1977 Post interview. “The customers were right on top of you, always heckling, and I began giving it right back to them.”The secret of his comedy was in his delivery, which was a blizzard of mockery, raillery and mayhem. His all-purpose put-down for dolts was to call them “hockey pucks.” He often mentioned his Jewish background, his mother and his wife, Barbara, for comic effect, as one sharp-edged observation collided with another in madcap verbal detonations. During a live 1968 performance at the Sahara in Las Vegas, every element in Mr. Rickles’s comic arsenal was on display when he discovered that an audience member was Lebanese:“God put us on this earth to laugh. Am I right? He made you a Lebanese? He made me a Jew. So what? “What’s your first name? Mohammed? Habib?“I’ve met you before, haven’t I? That’s right, you hung my uncle. .?.?. Where’d I meet you, Habib? Lake Tahoe, that’s — Barbara was pregnant. Are you the guy that made my wife pregnant? “How do you like that? My kid’s an Arab.”Mr. Rickles seldom used language that would have to be censored on television, but many people considered his humor brazen and in poor taste, especially early in his career. As time went on, his style seemed caught in a sometimes uncomfortable time warp.Long after it was considered insensitive or worse, Mr. Rickles used outmoded stereotypes to mock women and practically every conceivable ethnic group. He continued to appear on late-night talk shows and in nightclubs into his late 80s.In 1998, Washington Post television critic Tom Shales spent a weekend attending Mr. Rickles’s performances at a nightclub in Atlantic City.“On a giant stage,” Shales wrote, he was “much more complex and poignant than the loudmouthed guy who guests on the talk shows. .?.?. Rickles seemed mythic, timeless, fearless — endowed by the gods with some absurd miraculous gift.”Although he disliked the term “insult comedy,” Mr. Rickles knew that insults were what his audiences came to expect. “I have this gift for saying things with a certain attitude, walking a very fine line with that attitude and staying on the right side of it,” he told the Star-Ledger in 1993. “But it’s always a gamble. Sometimes it’s tough to judge whether you’re about to cross that line.”He often turned nervously away from the butt of his jokes to address the rest of his audience

Frederick B. Lacey, Who Prosecuted Corruption in New Jersey, Dies at 96 - New York Times

Monday, May 01, 2017

As an imposing, 6-foot-4 United States attorney for New Jersey, Mr. Lacey smashed the corrupt Democratic machines in Essex and Hudson Counties.He successfully prosecuted Mayors Hugh J. Addonizio of Newark and Thomas J. Whelan of Jersey City; John V. Kenny, the Hudson County party boss; and Mafia leaders with whom local politicians, power brokers and officials conspired to plunder the public coffers.Within four years, Mr. Lacey and his successor, Herbert J. Stern, won the convictions of three-dozen government officials after what Mr. Lacey called “the most intensive investigation ever conducted by the federal government in New Jersey” had uncovered graft “unmatched in anything in my experience.”“Everything has a price on it,” he said at the time.In the mid-1950s, as an assistant prosecutor, Mr. Lacey prosecuted Albert Anastasia, the feared former head of Murder Inc., the Brooklyn-based hitmen for hire, for income-tax evasion. (Mr. Anastasia’s first trial had ended in a mistrial; he pleaded guilty a few days before the second trial was to start. He was sentenced to a year in prison.)In Federal District Court, Judge Lacey oversaw trials involving Soviet spies and payola from record companies to radio station disc jockeys. He sentenced the confessed heroin smuggler in the so-called French Connection case, involving Marseille-based traffickers who were immortalized in the 1971 film of the same name that starred Gene Hackman.He also rejected a suit by the 85-year-old widow of Bruno Richard Hauptman
