An Article I Liked And Happy Birthday To Me

Herb February 6, 2005

My 45th Birthday today. Thanks. It is depressing sometimes to think that Poe had done his copious body of work along with editing magazines and writing articles on poetry that are still read today and been dead 5 years by my age.

Savannah is 4 lbs 11 oz. She may be staying in her vacation suite a little longer. Nothing new to report on that front, just business as usual.

Today, I do not even feel like writing, but I have to share this with you.

Since I don’t know how many of you get or read the “Parade” magazine in your Sunday newspapers and in fact I don’t even know what sort of papers there are in some parts of my worldwide readership (That is so much fun to say. It is a start anyway.) So I decided to give you all a link to this article by Norman Mailer. I agree with it wholeheartedly, except perhaps that he does not go far enough. I think that 3 of our biggest problems are Hollyweird, Madison Avenue and the 5-second sound bite. Here is the link. Please give it a read and some thought.

As the Good Book says, “…being a fool makes you a blabbermouth.”
