“Nobody wants to fuck the legend.”

We're only a couple weeks into 2006, but I'll be surprised if I read a better essay this year than this beautiful, funny, sad, Mark Steyn entry on Sid Luft.

This is a perfect piece of writing. Don't miss it.

Gads, this guy is good! I could only hope that he was a typical example of the press rather than the 6-sigma to the right exception that he is. I've never been a Judy G fan, but I still had to read this article from stem to stern.

I thought that obit was incredible when the Atlantic ran it in November. Evoked a lot of sympathy for a retread Hollywood C-lister I had never heard of. Don't miss what Styen published today on Sinatra's "I got you under my skin."
