Gore Vidal (1925-2012)

A towering intellect – I met him twice at book signings and once again at a National Press Club event. He suggested law school … so he was wrong once.


Another great intellect gone. I’ll miss watching him eviscerate opponents.

And there go the Pearl Harbor conspiracy theories…

@nojo: Even at his nuttiest, he had more elegance and wit than the freaks, morons, and losers we’re left with now.

@Mistress Cynica: I’ll second that! He was never a boor.
