Kenneth Goldsmith Says He Is an Outlaw http://ow.ly/2ZlYnI
To be a black man in the United States of America is to be in a constant state of war and I am tired, I’m just so tired of the war. White people want me to be dangerous, scary or sexy, they never want to know who the real Etheridge is and I bet white [...]

Happy birthday, Marilyn Monroe, Queen of June Geminis [by David Lehman] http://ow.ly/2ZlYnM
We don't think of her as a singer, but Marilyn Monroe (whose birthday is today), sang. Unlike Rita Hayworth and Kim Novak in Pal Joey, Deborah Kerr in The King and I, Natalie Wood in West Side Story, and Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, she needed no dubbing. (In another column I will salute the wonderful voices that emerge from Mesdames Hayworth, Novak, Kerr, Wood, and Hepburn in those flicks. Say, does anyone say "flicks" anymore?) See Marilyn m...

Introduction
I am not a hero, possess no fortune, haven’t changed the course of mankind in any way.

I am unaware of any whose life has been permanently altered by knowing me, and for the most part I know nothing about their lives today.

On the other hand, I am no serial killer, thief, dictator, malingerer, or miscreant. I am not in jail or institution. Some were sure I would be.

I am not dead. Bets were surely placed on how long Id last.

Mine is a story the world could probably do without, but for me, it is one that must be told.
