Gore Vidal is Dead

I saw a headline proclaiming  something like “Gay Author Gore Vidal Dies”. Uggh!

Some people leave us with a lot to think about.
I haven’t read any of his books yet but I plan to. I heard him speak on c-span a few years ago and he struck me as authentic. He certainly spoke outside the context of the mass media and I always appreciate that. I probably haven’t read him because he writes stuff that could be categorized as historical fiction but perhaps his choice of time periods and characters were just a way of getting his points across obliquely.
