THE INTERNET IS FOREVER (COMMENT). Dick Weisfelder commented here that “I have some reservations about every bit of trivia I write being recorded for posterity.” It is hard to get used to the fact that items on the internet may last forever. Forty years ago I went to a lecture by George Steiner, the man of letters. He commented on the feeling, the thrill, that ancient Greek playwrights must have had to know that their words would be recorded, that singers had when phonograph records were introduced, and that actors had when movies came in. Now writers of trivia know the feeling. I suggest to Dick that he think in terms of one generation. His grandchildren will be as interested in his comments as my children are in the memories of my father that I put on this blog.
