No, Charles, there's nothing poetic in death.
You die. You're dead.
Youre not the wind that blows, you're not the sky that snows.
You're dead. Forever.

commented on Police Briefing: How a Cop Killed Clemmons
"It seems odd that someone with an almost-certain-to-kill-you sort of pre-existing gunshot wound to the abdomen could run away."
Crazy people sometimes display superhuman strength.
"They couldn't aim for his legs or something?"
OK, you're a cop, you've got a killer in your sights, and he's running from you. He may or may not be armed.
You shoot him in the legs, and he goes down.
When you get to him, he rolls over and blows your head off.
I don't think so.

commented on Andy Warhol Loves Jen Graves
As both critic and agent:
I like (some of) Warhol's art. I disagree with (most of) Jen's commentary on art. So I'm not sure if this is good or not, but congratulations to Jen.
Eye of the beerholder, and all that.

The bookstore closing is really no big shock to me. I live near there, and the times I've visited, the women working have been indifferent to me at best (I'm male). The same thing happened to our previous bookstore several years ago...the lesbians who owned it were indifferent/hostile to gay men and then complained when they didn't support their business.
Same thing happened a couple of decades ago in St Louis. Get a clue--don't treat your clientele badly and then complain when they stop supporting you.

Basil is one of the "ass plant" trolls here.There are at least four or five.
Don't pay it any real mind. Kind of like Loveschild--it's a Slog creation to knock up page count. Nobody really believes that crap. A single individual "poster" may have perfect grammar in one post in a thread, and then in another reply in the same thread, not be able to find their asshole with both hands, a flashlight and a nurse.
