Isn't that pic of "Villon" actually Christopher Columbus?

This was good to see. For some reason, Villon has been on my mind a lot the last couple years, maybe to begin with because I admire the way he could create a colloquial tone in verse, like Bertolt Brecht, or Jacques Prévert. Also maybe because I can't resist a Bad Boy--fortunately, only in the realm of art. I like your Villon poem very much and will return to it.

Thank you, Bernard. --DL

What makes you think so? In the second picture, the actor playing Villon is Ronald Colman.
