Buffalo Bill’s

e.e. cummings's "Buffalo Bill's," published in The Dial, 1920. Image courtesy Wikipedia

Poem’s been running through my mind since I heard about Hitch. He was outsize to me, like Buffalo Bill. Perhaps someone will put him in a poem like this one. Perhaps, if the Muse is kind, I shall.

What I like about them is that, outsize as they were, legendary as they seemed, they were human. Fully, gloriously, infuriatingly and charmingly human.

    thanks for sharing the IBD editorial. They are always good for a laugh with their writing about “radicals” and “agitators.” To IBD, these terms refer to anyone who does not read and subscribe to the thoughts of the IBD’s editorial page writers. I do give IBD credit in that they clearly keep a line of separation between their news and editorial pages. Much of their reporting is quite cogent; I cannot say the same for the analysis of this news found on the editorial page.
