To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Exhumation in Chile

Was Neruda murdered by Pinochet?

His regular driver and aide has been claiming such for years.

How many U.S. poets these days have full-time drivers to ferry them around to their poetry readings and other business?

Not even this guy achieved that level of reverence.
