"MY MIND IS A RAGING TORRENT, FLOODED WITH RIVULETS OF THOUGHT CASCADING INTO A WATERFALL OF CREATIVE ALTERNATIVES!" Was never a big fan of The Carol Burnett Show during its heyday - I was a Smother Brothers Comedy Hour booster all the way - but I sure did love Harvey Korman's comic villainy in Blazing Saddles (and, to a lesser extent, High Anxiety). Couldn't even guesstimate how many times I've watched that flick, but Korman's scenes with "provincial putz" henchman Slim Pickens never fail to elicit big belly laffs from both me and wife Becky. Farewell, Hedley . . .
