yeah, too bad Jews have been so good at actually accomplishing something, Sally, instead of standing around snarking on message boards.

Please ask about West's sister Laura, who was married to that other wonderful writer, S.J. Perelman. I've always gotten a kick out of the fact that those two were brothers-in-law.

West is wonderful, tragic he's still largely ignored. Please, read his two masterworks, you'll be rewarded.
