RIP Harold Pinter & Eartha Kitt

The two have nothing really in common. A Jewish British playwright known for his brutal, simple, haunting and influental plays.  A singer actress known for her gravelly voice and over sexualized persona. I guess they both got in trouble for making political statements in public places. And they both died on the same day.  And they both were/are inspirational to me, so there’s that too.
