Ah, good taste, what a dreadful thing! Taste is the enemy of creativeness.
– Pablo Picasso
Boy, that’s the truth, isn’t it? And who jumps to mind among the worthies of literature? I mean, you don’t even have to wander off toward Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson or William S. Burroughs.
We’re talkin’ D.H. Lawrence, James Joyce, Mark Twain. Among those three there are banning, prosecution, and attempts to expunge their work from from libraries.
How can it be? Well, in the words of Ron White, “You can’t fix stupid.”
He has a pretty funny act. Says he got arrested for being drunk in public and argued that he was drunk in a bar and they threw him into public. http://youtu.be/u7WLfY2455o
Speaking of Ron White, I bumped into him the other day at the little liquor store across from our CB&TL spot on Coast Village Road. Apparently he live around here somewhere, mooching off that rich wife he talks about.
