Happy birthday, Artie Shaw, and let us not forget
when GIs learned street French, they pronounced
the French word for artichoke "Artie Shaw."
Married to beautiful women, an ornery cuss,
excellent marksman, innovative bandleader
Artie was a major Gemini. like Marilyn Monroe,
John F. Kennedy, Henry Kissinger, Dean Martin,
and Judy Garland. In Tarot Artie is represented
by the king of hearts. The two and three of hearts.
appear in his chart. He lived a long time.
His clarinet will live for all time.-- DL.
