My grandfather's passing has met with such a clamor for more of his wisdom that I, as his literary executor, have decided to publish occasional samples from his work. His estate is creating a multivolume edition of his collected works (papers, novels, speeches, poetry, libretti, etc.) This will be a labor of decades, but in the meantime do enjoy whichever of his essays, poems, aphorisms, etc it pleases me to toss you. He entrusted me with the password to this weblog, and so posts will still be done in his name. I find this appropriate, if also somewhat creepy.
