Gore Vidal in the NBA

National Book Award, that is. (I once posted something about the NBA on Twitter and got tagged by a hundred folks who quickly realized that I wasn't going to be talking about basketball...) The videos and speeches from the National Book Awards gala are up on the website. The highlight is Gore Vidal's delightfully rambling speech when accepting his medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.
