RIP Gene Wilder

The folly of mistaking a paradox for a discovery, a metaphor for a proof, a torrent of verbiage for a spring of capital truths, and oneself for an oracle, is inborn in us.

A true loss! Willy Wonka and Chocolate Factory and Blazing Saddles were two of my favorites. He was great with Richard Pryor though too!

My favorite movie of his was Young Frankenstein. I can't imagine anyone else who could play the character better than Gene did, at least for that time.

This.
Virtually everything GOP critics have told us would follow from the policies put in place has not come to pass. You would think that this would occasion a few mea culpas, some rethinking, an admission of poor prognostication. But, alas, it continues.
