In memoriam: Gore Vidal - "A true American"


R.I.P.

A true "American", Gore Vidal once said the U.S. Constitution is a "Peculiar and dismal document" in "desperate need of revision", he said "the states should call a constitutional convention before the nation is bankrupted by short-sighted big business and military leaders".
