Nice piece from Simon Schama about Gore Vidal.

Quote:

Perhaps it takes the passing of an ironist of Vidal’s spidery glee to make us realize what a rarity that quality is in an American culture that prizes innocence above worldliness, sentimentality over sarcasm, booming testosterone over gadfly wit—and treats any invitation to national self-mockery as Treason Lite.
