Gore Vidal, American Writer And Cultural Critic, Dies

Vidal wrote more than two-dozen novels and an equal number of nonfiction books in a career that spanned six decades. He was also a screenwriter, playwright and political activist, and his outspoken views made him a favorite on television talk shows. Vidal, 86, died Tuesday at home in the Hollywood Hills.
