My Bad

Okay. My friend Sam Hamill did have a birthday. He is the poet who has done more to organize resistance to war than any other literary figure of our time. He’s also not 75 as I reported yesterday. He is in fact 56 if you’re dyslexic. If you’re not, he’s 65. Got it? As I said to Sam last night, this is why I’m a blogger and not a journalist.

Here are some other facts that have been central to my thinking that I have discovered are faulty:

1. Judge Bork was not named after the sound that is produced by flatulence in the bathtub.

2. They play big league baseball in Brooklyn.

3. Book reading makes you skinny.

4. The reindeer in Lapland are fond of eating psychedelic mushrooms. This is why they can fly.

One out of four isn’t bad?
