Great author now decent dead guy.
enjoyed Burr very much
It's not enough to succeed others must fail- Gore Vidal
Vidal Sassoon was cooler.
Goodbye funny man
[SUP]In response to the Roman Polanski sexual abuse case, Vidal said: "I really don’t give a fuck. Look, am I going to sit and weep every time a young hooker feels as though she’s been taken advantage of?"[/SUP]
gotta admit I never read his books
I only browse through books w/ pictures
It's depressing to think we've gone from WFB and GV to Glenn Beck and .....some stupid liberal pundit....
I didn't agree with WFB on a lot of things, but he was intelligent and civil. He was also fun to watch, especially when he got that old lizard tongue thing going....
I remember when WFB said he smoked pot once to try it. It was legal though because he went out on a boat in international waters so he wouldn't break the law...
I wish we still had real public discourse. Buncha dumb headline reading one liner motherfuckers these days.
All about sound bites these days.
And emotional rabble rousing....
Did he seem civil when he said he would plaster Vidal in the face in the presented video? People holding differing political views have been petty and personal since Cain gave Abel the business in the great meat v. grain debate.
