No, but maybe Kafka would.  Or at least write a book about you.  A
nonfiction book of course, otherwise certain people who are above such
trivialities wouldn't bother reading it because it isn't "real".

That's ok, I don't know who Eve Black is anyway so her apathy doesn't
strike me.

PS- Death of A President was rerun here last night so I watched about 15
minutes or so of it.  Fakumentary, it should be called.  No gory autopsy
close-ups.  I was well disappointed.  But I couldn't help wondering what
the reaction in liberal America would have been had someone like
Charlton Heston directed a similar film depicting the assassination of
Bill Clinton during Clinton's presidency.
