i has a sad

I was going to do this tomorrow, but as I appear to still be in a semi-conscious state, I'd like to mark the passing of Joe Pevney, an absolute giant of a television director who directed some of the very best of the original Star Trek episodes, Alexander Courage, whose name you may not recognise but whose work you certainly will - he wrote the theme to the original Star Trek - and last, but certainly not least, the mighty Harvey Korman, actor and comedian, best-known (at least to me) as Hedley Lamarr in Blazing Saddles, but who was still touring, in his early eighties, as recently as last December.
I saw the notice for Korman this morning at work and clicked on it, and noticed down the side of the article a list of earlier obits, one of which was for Suzanne Pleshette, who died in January. I hadn't heard about that, and it made me sad. I liked Suzanne Pleshette.
