Harold Ramis was one of Hollywoods most successful comedy filmmakers when he moved his family from Los Angeles back to the Chicago area in 1996. His career was still thriving, with "Groundhog Day" acquiring almost instant classic status upon its 1993 release and 1984's "Ghostbusters" ranking among the highest-grossing comedies of all time, but the writer-director wanted to return to the city where hed launched his career as a Second City performer.
"There's a pride in what I do that other people share because I'm local, which in L.A. is meaningless; no one's local," Ramis said upon the launch of the first movie he directed after his move, the 1999 mobster-in-therapy comedy "Analyze This," another hit.

I don’t think he was a homosexual. Auto immune problems, if I recall correctly, include AIDS but many other problems with the body, too.
To paraphrase RUSH:
With the media, it isn’t the veracity of the charges, it is the seriousness implied.
I seem to recall that he was also a writer on “Animal House.”
Even if I’m wrong, he was terrific!
I guess it is not politically correct to use a specific acronym that might implies Harold was a homosexual?
Not "inflation," but INFLAMMATION! His effected his blood vessels, but other examples of auto-immune inflamation diseases include rheumatoid arthritis and crohns disease. None of these are something about which to joke.
He and two others wrote the screenplay.
I will never watch that movie again because of John Landis.
He has the blood of three people on his hands and has never owned up to what he had done. He is a cretin.
He reminds me of a nerdy math or science teacher. He had that look,lol.
