Percy Saltzman, expurgatedSee just this Post & Comments / 0 Comments so far / Post a Comment /   Home
Expurgated the salacious bits did they!? the silly Muggles! This is the Canadian way though isn't it? Take someone real and trim off what you don't like? Exposed as well is a Hobbit's misunderstanding of what blogging is all about - the ability to say exactly what you are thinking, right or wrong. No one is perfect. My good opinion of him would not be reduced one bit to know that he had feet of clay (if in fact that is what was revealed), on the contrary. A-and anyway, we all have feet of clay. I bet he is giggling up there; Rave on Percy!
His two sons, Paul and Earl, who acquired the intellectual copyright to the material after their father died, almost immediately had the more salacious bits removed, including Mr. Saltzman's rather detailed description of his interest in bare female bodies and his sexual difficulties with their mother, Mr. Saltzman's late first wife.
expurgate – verb (used with object), -gat·ed, -gat·ing. 1. to amend by removing words, passages, etc., deemed offensive or objectionable: Most children read an expurgated version of Grimms' fairy tales. 2. to purge or cleanse of moral offensiveness.

Why on earth would they have trimmed that? An Ode to Beauty and Love and inevitable Decline. Ai Ai - there is no sense in these Canadian Prudes, none.
