Moment of Silence - Harvey Korman

One of the most brilliant comedians AND actors that ever lived passed away yesterday. Harvey Korman brought us some of the great villainies in Mel Brooks' films as well as helped birth sketch comedy in its modern incarnation via the Carol Burnett show. He will be missed.

I actually watched Blazing Saddles today to, I dunno, send him off.

He pretty much owns the first third of that flick without even trying. And even after Wilder and Kahn come in, he still completely nails some of the best lines of the movie.

The guy was an incredible talent.
