My goal for this summer, is a lofty one...and possibly a repeat from years past...play golf at least once a week. I can't think of a more rewarding, way to both torture my self and procrastinate at the same time.

No pontificating, but a solemn safe home and rest in peace to Harvey Korman. I salute thee straight man extrodanaire. Yu may knw him as Hedley Lamar in Blazing Saddles, the Carol Burnett Show, and a host of other roles. Few men can play the straight man as well as Harvey Korman did, and a true comedy fan knows it's the straight man that makes the joke work.

Here are a couple clips from Blazing Saddles for your enjoyment.
