Rain Pryor says that when her father, Richard, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, the legendary comedian and actor saw the disease as another trial in a life that seemed tormented from birth.

She says he insisted MS stood for "more stuff," then she flashed a wily grin and admitted that "stuff" was a euphemism for a four-letter cuss word her dad was known for using.

Rain Pryor , author of Jokes My Father Never Taught Me: Life, Love and Loss With Richard Pryor, will read from her book at Security Square Mall Center Court, 6901 Security Blvd., at 6:30 p.m. today. For more information, call 410-265-6000.
