Marcel Marceau, née Marcel Mangel, the world’s most famous mime, died last Saturday at the age of 84. In his obit, “Prime Minister Fillon praised Marceau as ‘the master,’ saying he had the rare gift of ‘being able to communicate with each and everyone beyond the barriers of language.’” Maybe that’s why mimes scare me; I tend to not trust non-verbal people. But I’ll set aside my fears for the moment, and silently bid Marceau adieu.
