"Happy Brithday Mr. Poe!"
« on: January 18, 2008, 06:17:28 PM »

     January 19th will be Edgar Allan Poe's 199th birthday so please remember poor old Edgar by drinking a toast to his memory. I know the Poe Toaster will in Baltimore.

     And now, the birthday boy speaks for himself with a few cutting remarks:

    "I intend to put up with nothing that I can put down."

    "I believe that demons take advantage of the night to mislead the unwary----although, you know, I don't believe in them."

    "I have to bear cheerfully the sad poverty and the thousand consquent ills and contumelies which the condtion of the mere magazinist entails upon me in America---where more than in any region upon the face of the globe to be poor is to be despised."

    "With me poetry has been not a purpose, but a passion; and the passions should be held in reverence: they must not----they can not at will be excited, with an eye to the paltry compentsations, or the more paltry commedations of mankind."

      Here's sand in yer gears, Edgar!

"I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect on humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6,000 years ago." - Edgar Allen Poe

Proof that the man was a genius. Now tell me that this doesn't apply to our current society. Sure we have the technology that allows us to communicate with people around the world & do things at a faster pace. However, are we, as people, any wiser? Are we any happier than our parents or grandparents were?

     Literary history wouldn't have been the same if Poe would've had some happy pills.

     I brought my Edgar Allan Poe non-action figure(he falls down a lot but I don't count that as an action) to work today where he stood all afternoon by the main circulation computer with his Raven perched on his shoulder and not one person commented on him being there.
     Come on, Eddie---I'll take you home and put you back in your place of honor on my drawing board.
