Hey, Meat! Gore Vidal has a hard one for "The Homeland of the Jews." About a year ago, my Dad brought a similar reference to my attention, but I'm pretty sure that it was from a different one of his books.
Meaniful? Yes. But you've also gotta remember that this is the same guy who collaborated with Bob Guccione on "Caligula." It had me glued to the screen, but somehow I don't know if I'll be remembered primarily for its historical accuracy.
