Classic Mr NYC

A few years ago, I blogged a tribute to George Plimpton, the late writer/magazine founder/actor/pitchman/participatory journalist/society maven and all around great New Yorker. 

George Plimpton was a true iconoclast, a real original. A decade since his death, he is still remembered as the quintessential "professional amateur."

Recently, the PBS series "American Masters" did a great episode about his life and work. If you can't find it on the tube, you can watch it here.
