clerks never think
feet never bleed

Laura Owens, Untitled, 2004

* Happy Birthday to Mike Watt and Billy Bragg!

* JFK at the groundbreaking of a library in honor of Robert Frost in Amherst, Massachusetts, on October 26, 1963:

"Robert Frost...saw poetry as the means of saving power from itself. When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area's of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses. For art establishes the basic human truths which must serve as the touchstone of our judgment."

* "anti-semitism, like patriotism, is the last refuge of a scoundrel." -- Lou Reed
