Maurice Sendak, 1928 - 2012

While Sendak is best known for Where the Wild Things Are, a seminal book, at least for my childhood, his wicked sense of humor does not appear to have dimmed over his 83 years, as evidenced in this recent, laugh-out-loud two-part conversation with Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report...

For the record, Colbert's I am a Pole (and So Can You!) has now actually been published! Sendak will be missed, but never forgotten.
