“And just as Moses died right before he reached the promised land,” Bloomberg went on, “Ed died hours before the documentary about him opened in theaters. Leave it to Ed to find the best way to maximize publicity for a film about his life.” The audience erupted in knowing laughter as Bloomberg remarked, “Ed remained as relevant as ever, right up to his dying day.”
