18art2.337.jpg Art Buchwald, cherished American humorist, died last week, but not before penning a lovely, moving farewell column.

"For some reason my mind keeps turning to food. I know I have not eaten all the eclairs I always wanted. In recent months, I have found it hard to go past the Cheesecake Factory without at least having one profiterole and a banana split.

I know it's a rather silly thing at this stage of the game to spend so much time on food. But then again, as life went on and there were fewer and fewer things I could eat, I am now punishing myself for having passed up so many good things earlier in the trip."

Hope there are profiteroles and banana splits in the next life...
