Six Quotes From Three Sources With One RIP

________________________________________________________________________________________________


1.
America's oldest communal passion,
it's most subversive pleasure:
the ecstasy of sanctimony

2
All that we don't know
is astonishing.
Even more astonishing
is what passes for knowing

Philip Roth
born: 3/19/33
died: 5/22/18
3.
The danger with hatred is,
once you start in on it,
you get one hundred times
more than 
you bargained for

4.
The secret of nobody's knowing
what was going on in your head,
thinking whatever
you wanted to think
with nobody's knowing—
that's where the power
and the pleasure
are to be found

5.
A poet and a novelist
have as much in common
as a jockey
and a diesel driver

6.
Mammary Envy:
a churning longing to be
utterly and blessedly hopeless,
to be a big breathless bag of tissue,
acted upon instead of acting,
hanging there, as a breast hangs
and is there 


________________________________________________________________________________________________
Footnotes
The first four quotes are from THE HUMAN STAIN

The fifth quote is from MY LIFE AS A MAN

The sixth quote is from  THE BREAST

To refer to Philip Roth  as an iconic American  Novelist
is like referring to the sun as a big yellow ball. 

Rest in peace, Mr. Roth
and give my everlasting love
to all the usual suspects.

her alumni newsletter
from Pratt Institute,
yesterday

of Mrs. CarPeo
 
She remembers him
as a "teddy bear"
who may or may not
have been hitting on her
 
Be that as it moo,
these are four of nine

Rebranding The Acronym POTUS In The Trumposphere

________________________________________________________________________________________________

For two-hundred twenty-seven years,
and forty-four Presidents 
—from George Washington through Barack Obama—
the acronym POTUS meant
President Of The United States

But then Donald Trump
was elected President
and this word describes
too much of what he
says and does:

!!!

Today,
POTUS means
President Obfuscating The United States

The next
GoFather/Trump
page is
TBD

Newly Discovered Lyrics From Frances Sterling

________________________________________________________________________________________________

SOMEONE ELSE WILL

Shake it if you make it
Fake it if you don't
Cuz someone else will
if you won't

Take it if you can
Fake it if you can't
Cuz someone else will
pick up the chant

Show it if you're good
Fake it if you're bad
Cuz someone else will
be good or sad
***
