RIP - P.J. O'Rourke

A satirist - He was widely admired for his willingness to mock just about anyone who deserved it, including himself.

NYT: 02/15/2022   P.J. O'Rourke

 

From his 1st book in 1983 “Modern Manners: An Etiquette Book for Rude People.” 

“Good manners can replace intellect by providing a set of memorized responses to almost every situation in life. 

Memorized responses eliminate the need for thought.

Thought is not a very worthwhile pastime anyway.

Thinking allows the brain, an inert and mushy organ, to exert unfair domination over more sturdy and active body parts.”

 

Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

 

Known for his political satire - sorry I can't post any of them here. 

He was 74.

 

RIP - P.J. O'Rourke - 

The world is left a better place because of you. Thanks for the humor, the laughs and smiles, helping our politics to be somewhat lighter so we can sometimes laugh at and with each other.
