Coming Soon, Epilogue by Gore Vidal
Gore Vidal has some questions for Timothy McVeigh. A puffed-up-and-proud-of-it writer, Vidal, 75, is one of five people selected by McVeigh to witness his execution on May 16.Reached at his home yesterday in Ravello, Italy, Vidal said he didn't want to talk about McVeigh's macabre invitation, which has upset relatives of McVeigh's victims in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. “Don't you think you should wait for my Vanity Fair article?” he asked. He is planning to watch McVeigh, 33, die and to write about it for the magazine.
