The last line of the article says it all - Vidal, in his witticisms was always in earnest as Wilde never was. A criminal national tragedy (9/11) exposed Vidal for what he has always been just as the personal tragedy that was a crime against him (Reading Gaol) revealed Wilde for what he had always been.

Thanks for the link.
