And here as well, no matter how good the argument, the entity B. Frost is only encouraged to prolong its existence here by any sort of attention. We've all tried to deal with it as if it were a reasonable human, with no success.

You lost it right there. Maybe, and I think it's likely, he had an equal or greater "massive" humility, so much that it's arrogant of you to tar him with that simplistic brush without having known him.He was always focused on a role that was greater than himself. That's even in the Isaacson bio, where he talks about what he learned from his LSD experiences, for example.Edit: look who agrees with you above to see how wrong you were. (But I see that's about the theater....
Well done. See my edit above, also.
