HEY! Cabana Boy! Stop poaching my work or I'll send a
large burly guy---er--no, uh- a woman!-- to smack you back to reality!



Quick...send that burly guy over here...

The sooner the better...

If you send a woman, she'll just have to get in line...

Behind Mad, Frumpy and Nytempsperdoo...

They all want to spank my naughty fanny...

But my fanny belongs to Big Daddy...

Please, pretty please?

I really love the way you write.

How did you know I had a cabana?

And a dock... and a Bayliner?

National Writers Union AFL-CIO Local # 1981

I do know a little something about that union.  At first, I thought you had written that #1981 was your membership number; but actually they unionized in 1981 with UAW, if you know anything about Walter Reuther.
He died in a mysterious hit, following a previous attempt that took the same form, it was standard CIA style.

I knew who he was because my uncle Frank was CEO of Chevrolet division,at General Motors but I probably wasn't paying much attention to what was going on at the time of Reuther's death.

Then my friend came back from India and came out to the house and catching up informatively, she happened to mention that Reuther's nephew had shown up at Hanuman Temple ,Varanasi. 

There are many people involved from Baba Ram Das, Timothy Leary,on the MIT end, Allen Ginsberg because they are all interconnected as disciples of Neem Karoli Baba.

And then you ask me stupid questions about Kenneth Rexroth.  Why don't you ask carol polk, she has some very strong opinions about the reading at the Six Gallery for Allen, and the Jazz at the Blackhawk readings by Rexroth, like it was all some hippy-dippy phase.

So I'd been meaning to ask you when the heck you showed up in SF that you don't know boo? From dates mentioned previously by you, maybe you did get there after Rexroth gave up the Pine Street apt. and went to Santa Barbara to teach.  Doesn't matter to me.

But I do know that Gay Sunshine went through changes and Llewelyn Press disassociated from them.  It may be because of for instance something you posted at one time, don't know if it was here or at nytimes but it was from Llewelyn with  Ginsberg being mentioned quite a bit in it as you posted it.  However, your version differs from the original, which I think is the crux of the contention between Llewelyn and Gay Sunshine (for all I know it is still sitting in the Poetry Forum, unless you got rid of it one of those late nights) because I really don't think you posted the unexpurgated version of what  Llewelyn  intended.

It's really a matter of where it can be printed and where it can't be.  Some of the unions are putting up  a real effort for freedom of speech on the internet, etc but not all web-masters know that; and since it is their ownership in a sense, even if they are just making use of a service, they get to decide how far they are identified with the unexpurgated material.

Madupont, you've already swooped in and out-Duponted my parody on the previous page.  I bow before the master, or mistress, if you're into the whole gender-specific thing.

BTW, it's all in fun, just kidding, and no aspersions are intended on your globe-trotting  free-associational thought processes.

barton, I merely answered with what is pertinent about the union mentioned as the relevant poster's membership.  The founder of that union was a man with a political outlook much like the scientist being discussed in American history and, is a well known American unionist,  in his own right.  For that, attempts were made on his life but in the Nixon administration they finally got him exactly by the method of the prior attempt. Nixon made such a fine sounding  speech of memoriam, one would be unlikely to suspect foul play against the deceased who had always  done something for the working man.

(if he had not, I doubt very much that my uncle would have risen from the line work begun either in the Depression or previous to it, and ended up in charge of the division. I don't think that I ever saw him after about the mid-1950s. He died seven years after Walter Reuther. When you know whom  it was  that the division  had been named after,and how the
entire company had been founded, it seems obvious that coincidence had also given him a leg up or a special advantage.)

What is interesting to me is that one of the surviving heirs of the assassinated union leader immediately went to India as a convert to a non-self-serving outlook but at the same time was attracted to a friend of mine who was not particularly interested in him. That's life. Her guru was the same man  whom Timothy Leary but particularly Hugh Alpert checked into after their sensory deprivation experiments(the float in a water tank without sensory input). Having come up with LSD, it was Alpert (rather than Leary) who changed his name to Baba Ramdas, or just plain Ramdas upon meeting young Reuther's guru, Neem Karoli Baba who snatched the acid from Alpert's hand,asking "What have you got there?", and immediately downing the entirety from the container, to Alpert's astonishment.

Their were no apparent effects whatsoever. This so blew Alpert's mind, as incontravertable evidence that there was something more at work here than the chemistry, that he dappled with the ashram's discipline for a time but I have no idea whether he continued to retain that anymore than Ginsberg  who was actually dismissed from the ashram by Neem Karoli Baba who made certain recommendations to Ginsberg which he would not "follow" and therefor was out of the sangha.

In other words, this ancient temple in Benares, which has recently in the last few years been bombed by Muslims, as it offers sanctuary to Hindu travelers passing through, has nothing whatever to do with Maharaji Mahesh Yoga or Transcendental Meditation.

Nor do I globe-trot.  I like traveling but it is a major inconvenience isn't it?

Is anyone aware that Feb.25th.,next Monday, in the performance by Sean Combs (shown here  in a different role as fashion mogul with Ty Beckford, http://www.blackvoices.com/news/pictures-of-the-week )
for a remake of his Broadway performance, Raisin in the Sun.

Hint, there is a commercial advertisement for the tv production on abc
to the right of the photo, if you can take your eyes off Beckford. He's kind of stunning coming down the runway at you in fashion designed by Sean John. On the street, you might step aside in astonishment, right off the curb.

NO....not Savino!!!

Just kidding hehe... no love lost for hired muscle.  There's some question in blog-land as to whether or not killing Savino was going against Omar's own code.  I say no. "You know what?" BLAM!!! Brains on the wall.  Omar doesn't seem to care much about the promise he made Bunk last year about killing people.  Poor Bunk... can't even get his LabWork back because of McNulty's fake serial killer.

Richard Belzer's John Munch character from Homicide(s) and Law&Order(s) fame makes an appearance in the cop bar.  He has a funny line he says to the bartender but thats it.  Seemed like a cameo's cameo. 

I like how there are soooo many characters in The Wire (what other show has a cast this big?) that you can kill off guys like Butchie, Prop Joe, Hungry Man, Savino etc... and the universe just continues.  Its very true to life.  Big fish or small.  Everyone dies eventually.  Many with little fanfare.  Many die in the streets or because of them.
