You Want It Darker

In not wanting to think too much about Tuesday's debacle, I'll just mention the passing of two wonderful men. Leonard Cohen has passed.

A saint is someone who has achieved a remote human possibility. It is impossible to say what that possibility is. I think it has something to do with the energy of love.

And Robert Vaughn, who was so much more than a suave secret agent. Though that was pretty cool. 

A liberal Democrat, Vaughn became passionately opposed to the Vietnam War while he was making "U.N.C.L.E." and delivered anti-war speeches at colleges and other venues around the country. He also debated the war with conservative William F. Buckley on the latter's TV talk show, "Firing Line."

Vaughn became a friend of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and campaigned for him during his 1968 run for the presidency. When Kennedy was assassinated that year, Vaughn was so upset that he moved to England for five years.
