Drunkenness sped my run through the martyred oaks
Which bled prophetically while day
Light fell mute over the blue trucks
I remember so many things
So many evenings rooms walks rages
So many stops in worthless places
Where in spite of everything the spirit of mystery rose up
Like the cry of a blind child in a remote train depot
— excerpt from "poem to shout in the ruins"
1897 -- France: Émile Pouget's journal Le Père Peinard (Cool Daddy) summarizes the end of the Congress of Toulouse in these terms:
"...C'est surtout quand le "boycottage" et le "sabotage" sont venus sur le tapis que l'entente s'est faite franchement et carrément. Au lieu de perdre son temps et ses forces à nous foutre en bisbille, on foncerait tous en coeur contre les capitalos et les gouvernants. Et, nom de dieu, ça ne traînerait pas. On aurait vivement fait d'écheniller le vieux monde."

"At that instant he saw, in one blaze of light, an image of unutterable conviction, the reason why the artist works & lives & has his being — the reward he seeks — the only reward he really cares about, without which there is nothing. It is to snare the spirits of mankind in nets of magic, to make his life prevail through his creation, to wreak the vision of his life, the rude & painful substance of his own experience, into the congruence of blazing & enchanted images that are themselves the core of life, the essential pattern whence all other things proceed, the kernel of eternity."
— Of Time & the River, page 550
1901 -- Nietzsche’s sister Cosima, a raving anti-Semite, publishes the fabricated book Will to Power, based on a draft project he had tossed out in 1888.

1926 -- US: Samuel H. Day, Jr. lives (1926-2001), Media, Pennsylvania. Journalist, civil libertarian & opponent of nuclear weapons who led a leftist magazine in a landmark First Amendment court battle over the publication of an article on the hydrogen bomb.
Sam Day was managing editor of The Progressive in 1979 when it printed "The H-Bomb Secret: How We Got It, Why We're Telling It." The US government tried to halt its publication, which ultimately resulted in a victory for free speech advocates & journalists.
From 1956 to 1974, Day worked at several Idaho newspapers, including the weekly Intermountain Observer in Boise, where BleedMeisterAuntieDave & Bleedster Gus Hellthaler, as Midwest Field Secretaries & reporters for the US Student Press Association (USSPA)/College Press Service (CPS), met him & were marvelously hosted. We both wrote impressions of Boise for his paper, which was considered a fine crusading, muckraking newspaper.
After the Observer folded in 1973, Day became managing editor of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, then on to the Progressive.
Day, a Korean vet, went to prison innumerable times for his advocacy of international peace, & in 2000 wrote in an article published in newspapers across the country on Memorial Day weekend that,
"if it is right to honor those who served in the cause of war, then it is equally right to honor those who served in the cause of resistance to war."
He died at age 74, a self-proclaimed "Old Codger for Peace."

1967 -- Folk singer Woody Guthrie dies of Huntington's Chorea in New York City. He was 52. (See 14 July).
As I went walking, I saw a sign there
On the sign it said NO TRESPASSING
But on the other side it didn't say nothing
That side was made for you & me!
Radical folk singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie, 55, dies in New York. Guthrie had spent the last decade of his life in the hospital, suffering from Huntington's disease.
"I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good. I hate a song that makes you think that you are just born to lose. Bound to lose. No good to nobody. No good for nothing. Because you are too old or too young or too fat or too slim or too ugly or too this or too that. Songs that run you down or poke fun at you on account of your bad luck or hard travelling.
I am out to fight those songs to my very last breath of air & my last drop of blood..."
Guthrie left behind three wives, eight children (including songster Arlo Guthrie) & about 1,000 songs. He transformed the folk ballad into a vehicle for social protest & observation. He paved the way for Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen & a host of other folk & rock songwriters who have been moved by conscience to share experiences & voice opinions in a forthright manner. Wrote such revered classics as "This Land Is Your Land," "So Long, It's Been Good to Know You," "Grand Coulee Dam," "I Ain't Got No Home" & "Dust Bowl Refugees."
"Cause sometimes you hear'em when the night times comes creeping
& you fear that they might catch you a-sleeping
& you jump from yer bed, from yer last chapter of dreamin'
& you can't remember for the best of yer thinking
If that was you in the dream that was screaming
& you know that it's something special you're needin'
& you know that there's no drug that'll do for the healin'
& no liquor in the land to stop yer brain from bleeding...
— Bob Dylan, "Last Thoughts On Woody Guthrie"

The fact that putting LSD into a reservoir wouldn't work, that 20,000 naked hippies never materialized, that their levitation powers were severely limited, & that there was no Chicago office of the biscuit company mattered little. They were media terrorists...
