Harvey Korman, Mel Blanc, & Phil Hartman

Sadly Harvey Korman passed away yesterday at age 81, he survived a ruptured aortic aneurysm in his abdomen four months ago, but subcommed to it after several operations.

Mel Blanc passed away in 1989, he would of been 100 today. In todays Oregonian I learned a couple things about the man of a thousand voices. He was born in San Francisco, but raised in Portland where he attended Lincoln High and did radio announcing on KEX and KGW radio up till 1935 where he moved to Hollywood, and the rest was well....That's All Folks!

It's been 10 years this week now when Phil Hartman was killed by his wife in his prime. Still sad.
