In 1925  the birth of the King of the Underwood came forth
and some  21 years later, he would grace us with his wisdom
as well as his politics, quotes, manuscripts, short stories and then deliver to us Ben Hur
and Lincoln. His name was Gore Vidal and today he still "is".

I picture him typing on his Underwood in his various villas (of which he had many)
writing his own manuscripts chiefly because he despised, like most writers, interruptions 
unless it were as he said, " to have sex or a television appearance, both of which he lauded.

 Today Vidal leaves us with, " We are permanently the United States of Amnesia. We learn nothing because we remember nothing."
