Richard Pryor has died

Had a perfect day today, and I'm just now reading about this.

He had a Saturday morning TV show on CBS about twenty years ago called "Pryor's Place", that was pretty good. He's mostly remembered for the movies he made back then though, like The Toy and Brewster's Millions (let's just pretend that Superman III never happened, 'kay?). It's also worth noting that he was one of the writers on Blazing Saddles: Mel Brooks once said that everything that Mungo did was Pryor's handiwork.

Well, it's sad to see him go. He fought some serious demons in his life, but he also made us laugh a lot in the time that he was here.
