Harold Ramis

Yesterday, the new broke that Harold Ramis passed away at the age of sixty-nine. He was an accomplished writer, actor, director, and producer.

He also played one of the best geek role models out there, Dr. Egon Engler. As my friend RJ put it, he brought life to a character that will forever be known for being “a researcher, inventor, reluctant adventurer and hero. He showed everyone you could be smart and weird and funny and eccentric and nice and courageous, all at the same time, and be loved for all of it.”

Not many people can say they brought joy to people all over the world, Mr. Ramis, but you could. Well done, sir. Well done.
