A comedy genius passes

I can still clearly remember sitting in the historic Lafayette Theater in downtown Lafayette, Indiana and laughing until I cried while watching Animal House. I cannot count how many times I have used the term “double-secret probation” since that evening so many years ago. I had similar reactions while watching Vacation and Ghostbusters in the theater. Other personal favorites are Groundhog DayStripes, and Meatballs. The common thread of these hilarious films is the one and only Harold Ramis.

The world lost an irreplaceable comedy genius today and I for one will shed tears of sadness for society’s collective loss. Thank you for the many tears of joy, Mr. Ramis. May you enjoy as much happiness in Heaven as you shared with us here on Earth.
