Hollywood director Kazan dies

I'm obviously a bit slow on the uptake, as this is from two days ago. "East of Eden" is one of my favorite movies ever, which always made me feel guilty, given Kazan's real-life canary act in front of Senator Joe. His son was my freshman roommate's godfather, which greyed the issue even further -- her family just didn't talk about the McCarthy era. I found this out while I was working on a paper about the impact of Kazan and Arthur Miller (and their work) on the events of the times. Yep, I was a drama major.

Random memory dump. Rest in peace, Mr. Kazan. Thanks for making me think.
