Funny, funny guy Harold Ramis has died at 69.
I wasn’t a big “Ghostbusters” or “Caddyshack” fan. So sue me. But I’m one of the biggest “Groundhog Day” fans in the world.

But he was prolific in directing, writing, and acting in a long string of films that gave extraordinary pleasure to so many people. Let’s include “Animal House,” of course.
Here’s a New Yorker profile from a few years ago.
