LAST RESPECTS

Legendary funnyman Rodney Dangerfield, whose self-deprecating humor and signature catchphrase "I don't get no respect" made him an icon of stand-up comedy, died Tuesday at UCLA Medical Center. He was 82. Dangerfield, who fell into a coma after undergoing heart valve-replacement surgery on Aug. 25, regained consciousness in the past week. "When Rodney emerged, he kissed me, squeezed my hand and smiled for his doctors," Dangerfield's wife, Joan, said in a statement. Dangerfield got his first big break on The Ed Sullivan Show before making 70 appearances alongside Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show. His film roles included Caddyshack, Easy Money and Back to School. In addition to his wife, Dangerfield is survived by two children from a previous marriage.
