Best Ending Line of a Panel at FOB – Ever

Gore Vidal cloudy.jpg

Gore Vidal was one of the speakers at LA Times Festival of Books (and yes we are still going through out notebooks for bits and pieces.)

Our man on the insides tell us, the last question that was asked of Mr. Vidal (mind you, from what we hear, the entire crowd, was beyond smitten – more entranced with the writer’s every word – as they should be) was broad in scope. The questioner asked,”Ayn Rand and Noam Chomsky – your thoughts?”

To which Vidal replied,”What are they dating?”

The audience then erupted in laughter and the panel was over.

Swoon.
