Truman Says

R.I.P. Jack Valenti

From his Washington Post obit:

"Of course, Valenti never just talked. In his many public utterances, he orated and declaimed, grandly and voluminously, as if addressing the Roman Senate about the urgency of conquering Gaul. Some people found such verbiage pompous and smarmy, particularly since Valenti, who wrote all his own speeches, was usually talking about something relatively mundane, such as DVD piracy or runaway movie-production costs. Such lofty language would have been ridiculous -- if it weren't such a pleasure to hear a man so out of step with ordinary speechifying."
