Perhaps it is going to cause some controversy. Not sure Julie Burchill is right in referring to Brian as 'a man widely considered to be one of America's greatest poets', and 'Hey Little' to which she refers may be 'Hey Little Tomboy' which was of course not an ML lyric but IMO more harmless than she seems to think. I agree with some of her comments about Mike. She doesn't pull any punches.

The photo is wrongly dated...am sure it is from late 63 or 64. Definitely NOT 1962.

Sort of undermines the article a tad.

She sees the picture rather clearly.  Easy to see why she didn't get approached to write the forward for Mike's little 'essay of shame'.

I can think of things with which to find fault - I've mentioned a couple. 

Some of her comments about Mike seem quite fair though....

Ang - Although there are inaccuracies, it's a pretty strong statement about these men...and is more true than not.  Thanks for sharing this - you should move this to the proper category (if you or Craig? can).  It's worthy.

Thanks Bugs - I agree and sorry that I put it in the wrong place but I now note that it had already been posted by someone in the correct place!
