Havel's Meditation on Art and Power

Check out the Saturday profile in the NYTimes on Vaclav Havel here. It's discusses his semi-autobiographical, King Lear-esque play called Leaving.

And what, if anything, disappoints Mr. Havel about the state of contemporary capitalist culture? “I do not like the ads on the shirts of hockey or football players,” he said. “You’d think Coca-Cola is playing against Pepsi-Cola.”
