Actor Harvey Korman Dead at 81

LOS ANGELES, California -- Comic actor Harvey Korman has died at 81, according to the UCLA Medical Center.

Although he is probably best know for being a regular on "The Carol Burnett Show"(a great show from my childhood). I remember him best for his role as Hedley Lamarr in the Mel Brooks movie "Blazing Saddles"

Here are few of his lines from the movie that I can print:

"Go do that voodoo that you do so well!"

"My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives"

"You will be risking your lives, whilst I will be risking an almost-certain Academy Award nomination for the Best Supporting Actor."

"My mind is aglow with whirling, transient nodes of thought careening through a cosmic vapor of invention."

"Where's my froggy?"

"Alright, I'm through being Mr. Goodbar, the time has come to act and act quickly"
