at the gym today watching fox news with the captions on, some woman called charlie sheen a ‘poet’ and said, ‘he’s like alan ginsburg.’  i know this is the fault of the caption typist but still.


What an egregious error! First of all, comparing Charlie Sheen to Ginsberg, then spelling his name wrong.

Yet, they may have a point. The Daily Beast has turned Sheen’s rants into pure poetry. And it is kind of beautiful. “Can’t is the cancer of happen” is my new mantra.
