From the NY Times Obituary:

Mr. Vidal was, at the end of his life, an Augustan figure who believed himself to be the last of a breed, and he was probably right. Few American writers have been more versatile or gotten more mileage from their talent

Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen)

It’s been dawning on me slowly that for the past 35 years I have been cast against type, and I’m finally getting to do what I really wanted to do.

I believe in a country that rewards hard work and responsibility, a country where we look after one other, a country that says I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper, I’m going to give a hand up, join hands with folks and try to lift all of us up so we all have a better future, not just some - but all of us. That’s what I believe.

I’m not sure where this came from but if you work in advertising it’s worth the read. Consumer generated content is lazy, quit bothering people and do your job.

By and large talent is in such short supply, mediocrity can be taken for brilliance rather more than genius can go undiscovered.
