You know what I thought of Raymond Scott, the despicable little chancer who stole (he was acquitted of the charge, but c’mon, how else did he get it?) Durham University’s First Folio. He was a delusional, loathsome little prick. Even so, I did not wish him actual harm, and I’m sorry to hear he was found dead in his prison cell yesterday. After all, he is now food for– and the precious book he mutilated will last long after he’s through stopping up bungholes.
So rest, Raymond Scott.
