Old Git

Here's what none of the glowing encomia seem to mention about the plagiarist, Mr. Mailer. If you're famous enough, your crimes will be forgotten -- especially if they're against women.

Old git, indeed - mysogynistic sh**head for sure.

Thank you for this lovely piece on the execrable Mailer...I'm almost sorry you wasted bandwith on him....

Thanks! I just got fed up with all the amnesiac recollections offered on the radio yesterday without any mention of his major shortcomings. Amazing that this outdated version of "masculinity" still gets trumpeted in popular culture.

This was almost as bad as the agonized weeping over losing Reagan. Only almost because there wasn't as much of it.

Guess there's one major advantage to being sick - I missed it all. I actually did a google search on his name after reading your post to see when he died as this was the *first* I had read of his death.
