It is GK at his best, which is very very good.
And he makes this brush with death charming and funny, as well as, with a deft hand, profound and an argument for political action.
Tough to do under any circumstances. But even faced with bouquets of carnations and admitted uneasiness, he followed his calling in life and did what GK does.
A splendid example of courage and fear. Funny as hell too.
Glad you're OK, GK. And I'm glad you're not retiring.
