A comment by Valerie, Texas on Better to keep it shut...

Indeed, Sarah. My sympathy on the loss of your father. What a great memory to have of him. As a family we only got to see Bip work his magic via the Ed Sullivan Show. That you actually got to see a live performance and with your Dad, a blessing indeed.

I find the rush by French politicians to offer up comments on his passing interesting. If some of the obituaries I read of M. Marceau were accurate he had every reason to spit on his fellow French men and leave the wretched country that handed his father over to die in a concentration camp for being a French Jew. Apparently M. Marceau escaped his tather's fate and served in the French Resistance. Both items I had not known.

Cannot help but wonder if those years of watchful silence did not help to hone his gifts.
