    Gore Vidal, celebrated author, playwright dies at 86

    The nephew of Gore Vidal says the author, playwright and commentator has died in Los Angeles.
    Burr Steers says Vidal died at his home in the Hollywood Hills at about 6:45 p.m. Tuesday of complications from pneumonia. Steers said Vidal had been living alone in the home and had been sick for "quite a while."
    Love him or hate him, Vidal was one of the most prolific writers in the history of America. RIP.

    For some reason I thought he was already dead. RIP

    same here. I had thought he passed a year or two ago. Probably confusing him with Howard Zinn's passing. RIP Gore.

    RIP Gore Vidal.

    G.Vidal quote on on US politicians:

    "The United States was founded by the brightest people in the country - and we haven't seen them since."
