This makes me very sad. Harvey Korman was one of my favorite comedians (along with Tim Conway) growing up, and I had the special pleasure of seeing them on stage a few years back. Needless to say, they were still brilliant, even in their 70s.

I feel as if a little part of my childhood has died. This is a sad day indeed.
