Shocker: Gore Vidal feeling litigious

Gore Vidal plans to sue Edmund White over the latter's play Terre Haute, about a cultured European starting a correspondence with a terrorist, as Vidal did with Timothy McVeigh.

It's not clear if he was serious or just feeling cranky.

Story is in today's National Post - I'll link to it when I can find it online. [Found it.]

"For certain people after fifty, litigation takes the place of sex." - Gore Vidal

I wonder if Gore will discuss that matter tonight at the Elgin Theatre. Can't wait to hear what the ol' crank has to say.

Love that quote – do you think maybe Rebecca Eckler just ain't gettin' enough these days?
