Arthur Miller has died. He was 89.
Via Randa at MoorishGirl...who also points us in the direction of an excellent article of Miller's, Why I Wrote "The Crucible" (my favorite play of all time):
"Fear doesn't travel well; just as it can warp judgment, its absence can diminish memory's truth."
UPDATE: The NY Times obituary.
