Quote of the Week

hr

“Michelle and I were saddened to hear of the passing of Harold Ramis, one of America’s greatest satirists, and like so many other comedic geniuses, a proud product of Chicago’s Second City.  When we watched his movies – from ‘Animal House’ and ‘Caddyshack’ to ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Groundhog Day’ – we didn’t just laugh until it hurt. We questioned authority. We identified with the outsider.  We rooted for the underdog.  And through it all, we never lost our faith in happy endings.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Harold’s wife, Erica, his children and grandchildren, and all those who loved him, who quote his work with abandon, and who hope that he received total consciousness.”

President Barack Obama

Editor’s Note:  I loved that he used a Caddyshack reference at the end!

    I totally agree with the quote and I hate being such a skeptic of politicians but WHO took the time to write this eloquent “quote”?

    “My characters aren’t losers. They’re rebels. They win by their refusal to play by everyone else’s rules.”

    The words ‘great’ and ‘awesome’ are usually so overused, but damn…RIP
