A speech worth reading...

I just got through reading Harold Pinter's Nobel acceptance speech. He videotaped the speech since he was too ill to travel to Sweden. Yesterday's Guardian has the complete transcript. In it he excoriates a 'brutal, scornful and ruthless' United States. Some of the Fox gasbags are already accusing Pinter of anti-Americanism.

Pinter does have some very tough things to say about the United States. But his comments deserve careful consideration.

Definitely worth reading!
