I was reminded this evening that the measure of a person can be taken from his or her response to the opportunity to pull rank, as it were.  The older I get, the better I understand that the most talented actors are not the ones who need to trumpet their accomplishments or draw the spotlights to themselves. Aging actors who tie their worth to their roles are pitiful, indeed. And the ones who use their diminishing roles and consequent ebbing worth as cudgels are the most pitiful of all.
