A Cold, Cruel World: Fare Three Well

The world is a lesser place with out these three certified geniuses.

Fare thee well, Harvey Korman. Your portrayal of Hedley Lamar in Blazing Saddles is only one reason I thought you were brilliant.

Fare thee well, Yves Saint Laurent. A genius, a legend, a man of the cloth. His designs not only made women more beautiful, his clothes empowered them. I know one presidential candidate who probably owes him a great deal of thanks.

Fare thee well, Bo Diddley. I don't hear the name Lucille without thinking of you and the rhythm you brought to the world. The universe will surely swing less.
