Gore Vidal, iconoclastic author, dies at 86

Gore Vidal was impossible to categorize, which was exactly the way he liked it.

The reading public knew him as a literary juggernaut who wrote 25 novels —from the historical "Lincoln" to the satirical "Myra Breckinridge" — and volumes of essays critics consider among the most elegant in the English language. He also brought shrewd intelligence to writing Broadway hits, Hollywood screenplays, television dramas and a trio of mysteries still in print after 50 years.

I was just in NYC and saw "The Best Man"- political comedy set in 1960 that still has a timely message. All-star cast of James earl jones, John Stamos, John Larroquette, Cybil Shephard and Kristin Davis
