41. I'm not going to flame, but I do disagree.
I don't think Keith was uncharacteristically angry and cold. If you want to see angry and cold, see his "The 'City' of Louisiana" rant sometime. Or even his antismoking rant after he had a benign tumor removed from his mouth and decided that after 27 years it was time to dump the cigars and pipes.

I thought Keith did use a lot of wit and sarcasm--at the beginning, at least. He got serious when it was called for, toward the end when he was not only defending his own honor (because he had been unfairly accused of lying and distortion) but also trying to make a serious point about people who claim only their religion is "the right one."

I have only the greatest respect for people who know when it makes sense to be sarcastically witty and when the time has come to take off the gloves and just punch away. I think other people do, too.
