Death of a Comic Genius

I was saddened to learn that Actor Harvey Korman died yesterday at the age of 81. Though best known and remembered for his hilarious performances on the "The Carol Burnett Show," most memorably for me his role as Eunice's husband Ed or any of his performances beside Tim Conway, he also showed his comedic talent as Hedley Lamarr in the Mel Brook's classic "Blazing Saddles." Mr. Korman was a comic genius who shared his talent with the world, and in turn gave us immesurable joy in watching him perform. May he rest in peace.
