Edward Albee died. He was founder of “The Lit” magazine which I edited, along with dear classmates, at Choate. When I attempted to process life at that age, I would always quote from his Zoo Story: “I have learned that neither kindness nor cruelty by themselves, independent of each other, creates any effect beyond themselves; and I have learned that the two combined, together, at the same time, are the teaching emotion.”
