Remembrance …

… Uncensored John Simon: JACQUES BARZUN, R.I.P. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

His figure and posture were excellent, and he wore his well-tailored clothes with an aura more diplomatic than academic. His accent was upper-class American, without a trace of his French childhood. I always wanted to address him in French, to hear how he would sound in that language, but I lacked the guts to do so.
