Harvey, You will be missed. You were the amusing voice of a generation and beyond, of people who were not lucky enough to find work that truly suited them. I'm glad you found fame, love and a family.

Hey, I think Harvey was a meat-eater. You sure you want him to rest in peace, still?

Creepy, troubled, haunted little man.

Probably would have died in obscurity along with his misfit friends from the Post Office had it not been for someone taking a curious look through a camera lense to make American Splendor...strange existance.

Certainly does not enhance the image of Cleveland as Oddball Harvey is portraied throughout the movie.

Sad but strange none the less.
