Bravo, Mr. Cavett*

“Your life isn’t given,” I remember him saying, “it’s brutally ripped away from you. You’re no good to your buddies dead, and when the bullets start pouring in you don’t give a goddamn about God, country, Yale, your loved ones, the last full measure of devotion or any other of that Legionnaire patriotic crapola. You just want you and your buddies to see at least one more sunrise.”

A worthwhile read, if for no other reason than Mr. Cavett's nearly perfect writing.

You can only read it if you pay The New York Times for the privilege.

Nice photo, though. Proud to have The Man grace Heigh-ho's front page.

I thought the photo would help.

Forgot about the pay per view nazis at the NYT. I'd cut and paste the piece but I wouldn't want the owber of this blog to get least not for that.

I'll try to figure something.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.
