Kero asleep

Heh. Neat! :)

From the appendix of Some Buried Ceasar, by Rex Stout, "Bantam Crime Line" edition:

Rex Stout and P.G. Wodehouse were lifelong friends and each had a tremendous respect for the other's work. When Stout heard the news of Wodehouse's death in 1975, he expressed his admiration thus: "He always used the right words, and nearly always used them well."

Given the personalities and interests of these two, why does this not surprise me at all? I would love to have heard some of the banter these guys bandied back and forth.
