      [1] "Poetry on Record: 98 Poets Read Their Work, 1888-2006" on Shout
      Factory <shoutfactory.com>. Thanx Nina for the great birthday
      present. Incredibly beautiful seductive package. Some amazing
      recordings. Walt Whitman (maybe!). Beautiful package although the
      editors and compilers stuck pretty much to the straitjacketed canon.

      [2] "Beat Poets" Courtesy of Black Sifichi. Interesting throughout.
      Best or most fascinating are Ian Dury's interpretations of the Beats.
      Seems like a natural affinity somehow. Also with William Marsh, Diane
      Di Prima, Anne Waldman and some great stuff by Tuli Kupferberg. His
      'Paint it Red (and Black)' is an anarcho-syndicalist rewrite of the
      Rolling Stones song.

      [3] "Jazz of the Beat Generation" on Jazzfm <records@...>. EW:
      "Kerouac is here because...well, like most of us, I read a lot of
      Jack and even published his daughter Jan (in Ins & Outs magazine),
      plus knew personally (as well as published) many other Beat-era
      writers, (e.g. Ginsberg, Corso, Huncke, et al)." Kerouac in some ways
      defined the erosion of naivete/innocence of the 1950s. While
      Burroughs captured the paranoia/cynicism of the new awareness that
      there IS an US vs Them, but that this binary system needed to be
      adjusted by a counter-media as championed by political writers and
      Burroughs & Ginsberg. As for Getz & Mulligan...hey, man, it's jazz!
      The Kerouac piece draws me back into my late teens when Kerouac was
      my role model [despite the fact that he'd drunk himself to death by
      age 46 in an easy chair in his mom's place in Florida, I believe] and
      I made life choices based on reading his books and then becoming
      fully-enamored of the supposed socialism-lite ethos of hippies, this
      combined beat-hippie influenced then latched onto punk [which was the
      nihilistic hippie response to post-hopeful times, hippies in reverse]
      and at some point, I had no chance of success, no ins, no job, no
      prospects except the consolation that I had done things "by the
      book." Idealism is always a bit naïve. Anyway, I am not claiming to
      have major regrets but I do wonder what might have happened to me and
      my writing had I not been so devoutly anti-institution,
      anti-grad-school, anti-establishmentŠ


      o 4 of 10 Brits and 4.3 of every 10 Americans never come in the
      neighborhood of a book. They don't buy them, borrow them from
      libraries, lend them or read them. They might however use one as a
      coaster for a beer bottleŠ

      o Netherlands Finishes Tied for First in Press Freedom: A recent
      survey by Reporters Without Borders that began some 4 years ago
      posted its rankings of freedom of the press around the world. The
      Dutch finished #1 with Finland, Iceland, and Norway. Canada is #5 and
      the US finishes under most of Western Europe and Slovenia and Costa
      Rica and sits at #17. The worst are North Korea and China. Italy
      finished #40 making it the lowest Western European ranking country.

      o The book 'Goodnight Moon,' has an amazingly simple formula. A
      children's book that tries to put kids to sleep with the story and
      the prose style. It works utilizing enchantingly beautiful simple
      poetic prose. This story by Edward Wyatt [11/05] comes courtesy of
      'Margaret Wise Brown's classic "Goodnight Moon" has been newly
      revised by HarperCollins [which] has digitally altered the photograph
      of Clement Hurd, the illustrator, to remove a cigarette from his
      hand. HarperCollins said it made the change to avoid the appearance
      of encouraging smoking and did so with the permission of the
      illustrator's estate. But Mr. Hurd's son, also a children's book
      illustrator and author, said he felt pressured to allow it. And the
      move has touched off something of a tempest in the nursery, with some
      children's booksellers expressing outrage. One has even mounted a
      campaign to have the original picture restored. The photograph of Mr.
      Hurd cheerily grasping a cigarette between the fingers of his right
      hand has been on the book for at least two decades.

      Kate Jackson, the editor in chief of HarperCollins Children's Books,
      said it only recently came to her attention, at a meeting to discuss
      how to publicize the book's 60th anniversary in 2007Š. The company
      was about to reprint the hardcover and paperback editions, so "as a
      quick fix, we adjusted the photograph" to eliminate it Ms. Jackson
      said. "It is potentially a harmful message to very young kids," Ms.
      Jackson said, "and it doesn't need to be there."

      Ms. Jackson said the change was made with "the full involvement,
      permission and understanding" of Mr. Hurd's estate, which is managed
      in part by his son, Thacher Hurd. But in an interview, Thacher Hurd
      said he had originally balked at the idea. After several discussions,
      "I reluctantly allowed them to do it," he said. Now, the retouched
      picture, with his father standing with his right arm crooked in front
      of him, two fingers extended with nothing but air between them,
      "looks slightly absurd to me," he added.

      Clement Hurd, who illustrated close to 100 other books for children
      and who also collaborated with Margaret Wise Brown on "The Runaway
      Bunny," died in 1988 at 80. His son said that he had stopped smoking
      sometime in the 1950's, and "he really disliked smoking later in
      life." Still, he said, he thinks that both his father and Margaret
      Wise Brown "would be thoroughly amused by this." Less amused are some
      children's booksellers, including Pete Cowdin, an owner of Reading
      Reptile bookstore in Kansas City, Mo., who has created a Web site in
      protest. The site, goodnightreality.com, encourages visitors to vote
      for or against the cigarette and to send e-mail messages to
      HarperCollins. Mr. Cowdin said the 10,000 responses had been running
      about 50-50 until he discovered thousands of anti-cigarette votes
      being cast by a single user. Once that user was blocked, he said, the
      votes have been 200 to 10 against the altered photo.

      This isn't the first time antismoking forces have done some
      airbrushing. In the mid-1990's, when it created postage stamps based
      on photographs of Robert Johnson, the blues great, and Thornton
      Wilder, the playwright, the United States Postal Service removed
      cigarettes from both men's hands. The French government did the same
      thing when creating a stamp of André Malraux, the philosopher and

      o Monks in Gang Fight: [12/06 Volkskrant/Reuters] Two rival 'gangs'
      of monks battled it out on the peninsula of Athos, Greece recently.
      Athos is apparently a holy ground for Greek Orthodox Christians and
      has some 20 cloisters that do not allow women to enter. The fight
      broke out when Orthodox-Orthodox monks occupied a monastery in
      protest against improving relations with the Roman Catholic Church.
      When some Moderate Orthodox tried to enter their own monastery they
      were attacked by the enraged Double-O monks who attacked the
      moderates with crowbars!!! and sledgehammers!!!! Seven Moderates were
      injured. Three Double-O monks have been banned from Athos. Methodius,
      'gang leader' of the Double-Os said .We were provoked and attacked
      and so we had to react. They should be ashamed of themselves calling
      themselves men of god'.
