Comic powerhouse Harvey Korman dies at 81
By BOB THOMAS, Associated Press Writer
2 hours, 48 minutes ago
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Harvey Korman, the tall, versatile comedian who won four Emmys for his outrageously funny contributions to ‘The Carol Burnett Show’ and played a conniving politician to hilarious effect in ‘Blazing Saddles,’ died Thursday. He was 81.

Korman died at UCLA Medical Center after suffering complications from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm four months ago, his family said. He had undergone several major operations.

‘He was a brilliant comedian and a brilliant father,’ daughter Kate Korman said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. ‘He had a very good sense of humor in real life. ‘

A natural second banana, Korman gained attention on ‘The Danny Kay”

last day thoughts

I will preface this with a disclaimer of sorts, I am a romantic and big on sweeping emotions not to mention hugs, So there it is. I will also say this I have tried to dissuade myself of as much of my emotion as I can. Today was my last day working for the Seattle City Council and the City Auditors. What an incredible group of folks I had the opportunity to work for. There are a number of people who kvetch about the motivations and effectiveness of the City Council. I have to say as someone that has worked in a support capacity for the Council there isn’t a better more committed to the good group of people around. There are so many people on the back-end that make the Council what they are and make the Council effective in bettering the lives of all Seattleites. I may have not always have agreed with all that I saw however the bigger and longer picture has always remained true for me. I wish that people knew how much work is done in City government and how much the people that you don’t see on T.V. do from the Legislative Assistants keeping the Council members on point AND on track to the folks writing the legislation and doing the background research to the Clerks office who document, keep track and archive the Cities life-history. Working for Seattle has given me a whole new appreciation for the work and especially the people that make it happen. I genuinely am sad to be leaving. Yes, I am happy for the next part of the journey but as you can tell from my words, already I look with fond remembrance on this time and really isn’t that one of the criteria of time well spent. So my last words are hopefully the most affective and simple of all, Thank you.

Battlestar Galactica Ratings Up

Battlestar Galactica Ratings Up: “

Ratings for Battlestar Galactica are up 4% over equivalent episodes in the 3.5 season, according to Hollywood Reporter; counting seven day VCR viewers, ratings are up 18%.

Most serial shows decline season over season, and Battlestar Galactica had followed that pattern until this year, so the reversal is significant. The increase is probably due to interest in the build-up to the finale, as the storyline takes on a more cosmic direction.

That interest is going to be suspended when the current run of episodes ends; because of the writer’s strike, the series-ending episodes will not begin airing until February 2009.

That will create an extended period between the first and second halves of the season during which DVDs, graphic novels, games, toys, and other merchandise can be sold, which may end up moving more product than the originally planned straight run through the final season would have done.

Things have definitely been moving along quicker. I am almost done with my current job which ends on Tuesday. Today will be the last full day of work work. I have an eye doctor appointment tomorrow so I will be leaving at 2:30 for the long weekend. I am glad to be done with it. It has become more and more difficult as I get closer to the end date. The next focus is on packing and sorting. The move will go so much more smoothly if the boxes are packed right and color-coded for easier unpacking. The goal is to have everything packed and ready to go by the time we head down there at the end of June. That leaves most of July
to enjoy, find work and relax. Once the lease is signed and we take possession I will switch over the phone numbers to california. I would like to take care of the car while we are down there in June or at the very least my drivers license. There is so much to do, lots of little things. Time to get ready for work. I had a small accomplishment of sorts. I have started jogging and am able to make it twice around Cal Anderson park. It is 1/3 of a mile around so that’s not so bad.
