    Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Nobel Prize winner, Literature, 1970, died August 3, 2008. He spent a lot of time and effort publicising the vicious and lethal oppression of its own peoples by the Soviet Regime (One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, The First Circle, The Cancer Ward), then rejected western culture. Here's an excerpt about him, courtesy of the Wikipedia: (link)
    Delivering the commencement address at Harvard in 1978, he called the country spiritually weak and mired in vulgar materialism. Americans, he said, speaking in Russian through a translator, suffered from a "decline in courage" and a "lack of manliness." Few were willing to die for their ideals, he said. He condemned both the United States government and American society for its “hasty” capitulation in Vietnam. He criticized the country’s music as intolerable and attacked its unfettered press, accusing it of violations of privacy. He said that the West erred in measuring other civilizations by its own model. While faulting Soviet society for denying fair legal treatment of people, he also faulted the West for being too legalistic: "A society which is based on the letter of the law and never reaches any higher is taking very scarce advantage of the high level of human possibilities."

    Shortly after his death, professor Richard Pipes wrote of him: "Solzhenitsyn blamed the evils of Soviet communism on the West. He rightly stressed the European origins of Marxism, but he never asked himself why Marxism in other European countries led not to the gulag but to the welfare state. He reacted with white fury to any suggestion that the roots of Leninism and Stalinism could be found in Russia’s past. His knowledge of Russian history was very superficial and laced with a romantic sentimentalism. While accusing the West of imperialism, he seemed quite unaware of the extraordinary expansion of his own country into regions inhabited by non-Russians. He also denied that Imperial Russia practiced censorship or condemned political prisoners to hard labor, which, of course, was absurd."
    A man brimming with courage as well as flaws.
    Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful. - Lucius Annaeus Seneca 4 BC – AD 65

    Yeah. As a Floyd fan, I rather like Wright's stuff. Great Gig in the Sky is magical... his solo stuff on Wet Dream (sadly disconinued on CD) was 70s funk-rock all too cool for school. I used to like Waters as the signature Floyd member, but now I gravitate to Wright and Gilmour.

    RIP Paul Newman

    Screen legend bows out at 83


    SCREEN legend Paul Newman, the Academy-Award winning superstar who personified cool as an activist, race car driver, popcorn impresario and the anti-hero of a string of popular films, has died at 83 after a battle with cancer.

    Newman died yesterday after a long battle with cancer at his farmhouse near Westport, publicist Jeff Sanderson said. He was surrounded by his family and close friends.

    Newman was nominated for Academy Awards 10 times, winning a regular Oscar in 1987 for The Colour of Money and two honorary ones. He starred in comedy dramas such as The Sting and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid with screen partner Robert Redford, among more than 50 other films.

    In May, Newman dropped plans to direct a production of Of Mice and Men, citing unspecified health issues.

    He got his start in theatre and on television in the 1950s, and went on to become one of the world's most enduring and popular film stars, a legend held in awe by his peers.

    Newman worked with some of the greatest directors of the past half century, from Alfred Hitchcock and John Huston to Robert Altman, Martin Scorsese and the Coen brothers. His co-stars included Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks and, most famously, Redford.

    He sometimes teamed with his wife and fellow Oscar winner Joanne Woodward, with whom he had one of Hollywood's rare long-term marriages.

    "I have steak at home, why go out for hamburger?" Newman told Playboy magazine when asked if he was tempted to stray.

    They wed in 1958, around the same time they both appeared in The Long Hot Summer, and Newman directed her in several films, including Rachel, Rachel and The Glass Menagerie.

    Newman was born in Shaker Heights, Ohio, on January 26, 1925. He was the son of Theresa and Arthur S. Newman, who ran a profitable sporting goods store.

    His father was Jewish and his mother was born to a Slovak Catholic family in Hungary.
