Yes, It's True . . . Amiri Baraka Slapped by Lunatic at Harlem Book Fair

Dear Unnamed Lunatic Author:

Personally, I think there should be something called Cultural Respect. Do you know what it would take for me to slap somone like Amiri Baraka? And in public? Come on, now! And why did it have to go down at the Harlem Book Fair? That's bad enuff, but for you to tweet and FB so people who weren't there will know? Maybe the name he ALLEGEDLY called you fits after all??!!

I'm refusing to use this author's name because she's a publicity hound, and I don't want to give her more than she's already garnered - but there's three things that really piss me off about this mess . . .

Are You . . . Really?

Are you my friend?
You come to me when you need something

and I welcome you with open arms.
When I see an opportunity that might be of help to you

I track you down to let you know.
When I'm personallly doing something that I think might benefit you

I track you down to let you know
and even hold up my project so you can get your stuff together.
Do you do the same thing for me?
Are you my friend?
