You crank, Walter Gropius did better things than any prop comedian. Don't blame Marx for Stalin!
Gropius is not Marx in your analogy. He's Brezhnev, only without the animatronics.
The thing about Gropius is that he did more than HELP DESTROY ARCHITECTURE - and the buildings he made don't look all that bad to me - and I have a soft spot for what I still insist is the Pan-Am Building - but he managed to run a school that produced a lot of good work and employed a lot of good people. Plus: ALMA!
Re the list criteria: warmer.
I always kind of liked Bela Lugosi's Dead.
There's a beautifully vicious passage in Elias Canetti's memoirs about Alma which I cannot be arsed looking up right now on account of fear of derailing the thread.
Tom Wolfe - ON THE LIST!
Tom Wolfe - ON THE LIST!I debated adding him. He meets my criterion #1 perfectly, but I'm unsure as to whether he meets #2. He probably does, but if I get the list entries wrong...the consequences...the living will envy the dead.
fear of derailing the thread.Have no fear. I don't care.
not a complete sausage-fest, Sarah Pailn.Sarah Pailn? who is Sarah Pailn?
I have no idea what you're talking about.
yeah, I do that too. Ihope your weekend is filled with Rush.
Which James Buchanan? The president (1857-1861) or the Nobel laureate (and inventor of public choice theory)?Both pernicious people, but I think James M. Buchanan is a profoundly repulsive person.
The president. He greatly contributed to the clusterfuck that was the beginning of the Civil War.
