« "Why 'Nixonland' Matters" [by Joe Lehman] | Main | The Poetry Question [by Dave Morice] »

May 26, 2022


Just got a phone call from a guy who said he was Mitch Sisskind
I said, you're not Mitch he's not a scammer
So the guy replied you're right
I'm Hitler go fuck yourself

Brilliant commment, Joel.

Can you call back? I'm really curious who the second most popular dead person is. Thanks.

My guess is Jesus except there are those who will say he doesn't qualify because he's not really dead. Among the women: Marilyn Monroe.

To Mitch McConnell

There's no way to retract my "brilliant comment" so I had to leave it as is
I was in a gin infused stupor when I posted it here
Hopefully, the readers will excuse my poor writing skills and judgment
But Hitler can still go fuck himself
For calling up Mitch in the first place
It's a phone call he'll never forget

I agree with Joel Weiner (and btw I don't think 'Mitch McConnell' was being ironic when he said 'brilliant').

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
