Charles Bukowski

Having The Flu And With Nothing Else To Do

I read a book about John Dos Passos and according to the book once radical-communist John ended up in the Hollywood Hills living off investments and reading the Wall Street Journal this seems to happen all too often. What hardly ever happens is a man going from being a young conservative to becoming an old wild-ass radical however: Young conservatives always seem to become old conservatives. It's a kind of lifelong mental vapor-lock. But when a young radical ends up an old radical the critics and the conservatives treat him as if he escaped from a mental institution. Such is our politics and you can have it all. Keep it. Sail it up your Ass.
