Stripes, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters . .
He was an actor, producer, writer, and director; and most of all a really funny guy who made us laugh.
Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

RIP. Just saw the announcement. He also directed Groundhog Day. He was a great foil for Bill Murray.

Do not forget Animal House, Heavy Metal, Meatballs, Back to School, Club Paradise, Groundhog Day, Analyze This, As Good as it Gets and Orange County.
With my apologies for the plagerism, this man had a direct line to my funny bone.

So sad about this. I just watched part of Stripes with my DS yesterday.

What a loss.
He was such a funny funny man.
So many quotable lines came from him. Just thinking of all the one liner from Caddyshack alone. (Just watched it again last weekend)....
He also had ties to St. Louis, as a grad of Washington Uni.
He was afflicted with a rare, and horrific autoimmune disease.

When we saw Letterman, this guy would come out during commercials and talk to Dave and they'd scribble on some papers and then the guy would leave. Eventually we realized it was Harold Ramis! It was totally cool.
He was really, really a brilliant writer. I can't imagine how many lines we parrot that he is responsible for.
