Harold Ramis: We Saw Him First, Eh?

index

The first SCTV bit I ever remember seeing was also the first one I thought of when I learned of Harold Ramis's death.

For a split second, I hesitated referencing his fake PSA "So You're Dead, Now What?" on my blog, which isn't like me.

My instinct to run with it proved sound:

Ed Driscoll thought of it too, and then I saw it cited elsewhere, without a single "too soon!" complaint in the comments.

That's rather startling, given our hypersensitive, easily offended, concern-trolling society.

Then again, maybe it isn't.

To his credit, Harold Ramis's daunting creative output contributed not a jot nor a tittle to the spread of the toxic, politically correct culture that metastasized during his lifetime.

For that alone, he deserves all the praise he's been receiving this week.
