It’s poet and writer Allen Ginsberg’s birthday today.  Unfortunately, I never got to meet him before his death in 1997, but I wrote him a letter requesting his autograph and he wrote me back!  That’s poetic justice!

Also born today: singer Curtis Mayfield, actor Tony Curtis, not out but gay news anchor Anderson Cooper and singer Josephine Baker.
