Subscribing to Woody Allen's thoughts on death

Jeremy Bernstein - Scientist

Well, I subscribe to something Woody Allen said, that he doesn't want to be there when it happens. Other than that, it's… about death. I'm concerned that I will leave a mess because I live alone and there's a lot of disorder and somebody's going to have to straighten it out. I mean, it's… you know, it's the sort of disorder that can be straightened out in a couple of mornings with a moving van but somebody's going to have to do it. I suppose maybe my sister will do it, if she wants, or perhaps her friends. And when people look around, they'll find things that I won't be around to explain. I won't be around to explain the books.
