RIP Art Buchwald

Art Buchwald died today at the age of 81, almost a full year after he refused dialysis and was given a few weeks to live. He defied the odds and had a great year.

That made him even more likeable.

Here's Buchwald on his wit:
"People ask what I am really trying to do with humor," he wrote. "The answer is, 'I'm getting even.' ... For me, being funny is the best revenge."

He got it.
