LB: I Miss Gore Vidal Already

Celebrated author, playwright Gore Vidal dies at 86 – by Hillel Italie and Andrew Dalton, The Associated Press

Author, playwright, politician and commentator Gore Vidal, whose vast and sharpened range of published works and public remarks were stamped by his immodest wit and unconventional wisdom, died Tuesday at age 86 in Los Angeles.

Some of my personal favorite Gore Vidal quotes that have no relevance to politics or culture:

  • A narcissist is someone better looking than you are
  • Whenever a friend succeeds, a little something in me dies.
  • The more money an American accumulates, the less interesting he becomes
