Bye, Harvey.

R.I.P. Harvey Korman.

Some of my earliest memories are of my whole family sitting down together to watch The Carol Burnett Show (in fact, this is literally the only show I remember all of us making a point to sit and watch together) and all of us laughing until we cried, often as the result of a Harvey Korman and Tim Conway bit (especially when they'd ad-lib and try to mess up the other cast members). And, of course, who can forget his performance as Hedy Hedley Lamarr in Blazing Saddles ("How could he do such amazing stunts... with such little feet?" Thud.)?

Bye, Harvey, and thanks for the many fun times.
