Beowulf Gotta Kill 'Dat Bad Ol' Dragon!

Dear Hunter & Amanda:

Oh holy cow! Thanks ever so much for the excellent package o' dynamite gifts. I especially liked the C3-PO doll (it is most bitchin'). I apologize that I was not at home to receive your visit, but alas I work from 9:00AM until around 6:00PM Monday through Friday! It is a gyp to be sure but next time calling ahead or otherwise making plans might be preferable (however surprises are indeed always nice and mostly welcome) inasmuch as perhaps I can plan to be home at the time of the visit. Thank you again for the rockin' presents, even if I couldn't understand what you (Amanda I reckon) were saying on the answering machine (not necessarily cuz yer French is bad, but rather because my answering machine was purchased for $10 at Family Dollar and is extremely low quality). Ping!

Yer bro,

"The Greatest Living American Playwright"

RIP Arthur Miller (1915-2005). I do truly believe he was the greatest living American playwright.

Sometimes I wonder how legends come to be, come to end, and come to be replaced. I can't really think of anyone who is a "legend" (to me) that has become as such in my lifetime. What will happen when all of said "legends" are gone? Not to get into what makes or does not make a "True Great," or anything; it's just something I've devoted some time to with the relatively recent passing of Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, Katherine Hepburn, Max Schmeling, Arthur Miller, et c.
