"In Key West, Florida, of the early 1980's, McGuane, Caputo, Harrison, and several other writers and artists often gathered to fish and destroy themselves. Harrison described to me a notably druggy Key West convocation, during which he was sticking a straw in 'a big Bufferin bottle of great coke. We didn't even bother doing lines.' When he returned to Michigan, he could not remember his cat's name."

I believe in rules. Sure I do. If there weren't any rules, how could you break them?

Agree, watched this episode last night, immediately afterwards poured three fingers of bourbon, went out back and sat in the dark for awhile. I would have preferred to see Jim set that rich fuck right. As if owning 100K isn't enough... douche bag.
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.
-Jerome K. Jerome, 1889

Harrison's passing diminishes all of us.

That being said, Dombrowski is a writer I shall now seek out--nice piece.
