Harvey Korman is dead. He had an aneurysm. He was 81. You may remember him best as Carol Burnett's TV sidekick who could never manage to keep from giggling during the sketches on her TV show. But I prefer to recall the Harvey Korman who managed to exude an air of taking himself too seriously when, in fact, he was doing quite the opposite. Korman was at his most brilliant in Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles", playing corrupt politician Hedy Lamarr:
I know... I know... It's HEDLEY!
Rest In Peace, Harvey.
