Two weeks ago, in an exegesis upon aftermath of the most recent iteration of the Kaku-Fuku Wars, I quoted a bit of utterly, obviously, bilingually bogus dialogue between President Lyndon Johnson and Kennedy-era White House Chef Rene Verdon which can found only in the works of the great American humorist Art Buchwald.
In comments, I noted that, contrary to popular belief, Art Buchwald was not dead.
Popular belief need not enter into it now: Art Buchwald passed away, chortling all the way I expect, on Wednesday.
He was a very contented 81.
