Ever since I read much of his work in The National Lampoon in the early 1970s, I have enjoyed the writings of PJ O'Rourke. He rarely disappointed me then, and that continues to be true.
So much of what he says in this interview [via Scoop] strikes a chord with me. I especially liked these snippets:
What has been your greatest disappointment?
My parents died much too young.
If your 20-year-old self could see you now, what would he think?
He wouldn’t notice me. I’d just be another old, hopeless square.
Life, out of 10: as inspired by Spinal Tap – “Turn it up to 11”
