Amiri Baraka: Controversial Author And Activist Dies At 79 http://huffpost.com/us/entry/4570912
Amiri Baraka Dead: Controversial Author And Activist Dies At 79 Amiri Baraka, the militant man of letters and tireless agitator whose blues-based, fist-shaking poems, plays and criticism made him a provocative and groundbreaking force in American culture, has died. He was 79. Perhaps no writer of the 1960s and '70s was more radical or polarizing than the former LeRoi Jones, and no one did more to extend the political debates of the civil rights era to the world of the arts.
Amiri Baraka ~ Transformed from Beat Caravan of Allen Ginsberg & Kerouac to Leader of Black Arts Movement; Ally of Black Power, rejecting liberal optimism of early '60s & intensified divide over how & whether black artists should take on social issues. Scorning art for art's sake & pursuit of black-white unity, Barak was part of philosophy calling for teaching Black Art & Black History & producing works bluntly calling for revolution. ~By HILLEL ITALIE 01/09/14 AP http://www.huffingtonpost.com

'Day Jobs of the Poets'. Incidental Comics by Grant Snider, April 2013: http://www.incidentalcomics.com/2013/04/day-jobs-of-poets.html
Day Jobs of the Poets The latest bookish strip from Grant Snider at Incidental Comics. Who adds: This comic is factual, but it requires a couple clarifications: Wallace Stevens was an executive at an insurance company, not your average insurance salesman. And there's no evidence that Emily Dickinson liked cats, but her sister Lavinia was cat-obsessed. So Emily must have been forced to cat-sit occasionally.

Yesterday I dyed my hair red. It's not the first time, and it's not the reddest of reds; in fact, it doesn't even come close to Florence's hair, yet, redder than it was before, for the dye has started to stick to my almost black hair... Anyway, my point is that I am pretty much obsessed with red hair nowadays, and wish I could be as red as Florence. Nevertheless, I love and enjoy my new color, I am utterly happy and pleased with it. Ever since I dyed my hair, I cannot get this Sylvia line out of my head: "Out of the ash I rise with my red hair." I've got nothing to do with eating men like air, I am afraid; yet, as Florence said, it does somewhat feel like warrior hair. I love it!
