Harold Pinter, R.I.P., As Usual, Death Takes Our Presents Away At Xmas

Obit here. More here. & here.
All that happens is that the destruction of human beings - unless they're Americans - is called collateral damage.


I mean, don't forget the earth's about five thousand million years old, at least. Who can afford to live in the past?


The crimes of the U.S. throughout the world have been systematic, constant, clinical, remorseless, and fully documented but nobody talks about them.


Nothing is more sterile or lamentable than the man content to live within himself.


Apart from the known and the unknown, what else is there?

All quot4s above by Harold Pinter. I will miss him, anyway.

Another great american - Eartha Kitt died recently. She was a wonderful Catwoman on the old Batman series. Under her guidance, I would have gladly turned to a life of crime. (or anything else she wanted)
