Ask not for whom the bell tolls

Post by Duluoz »

On this day in 1961, Ernest Hemingway shuffled off this mortal coil in Ketchum, Idaho. Here's a few from the vaults:

Hooching with Hemingway
From some young chap named Frank Kelly Rich

For Whom the Booze Tolls

The Passionate Affair Between Alcohol And Ernest Hemingway: The Paris Years

And in bonus non-MDM content:
A letter from Hemingway to F. Scott Fitzgerald, May 1934

So, if you're feeling kind, raise a glass or several to the old man today.

Already did but will raise some more.

And re-listen "The Fear of Wages"...

"The trouble with internet quotes is that one can never be sure if they are genuine." - Abraham Lincoln
Kindly listen to this, please.

I wish I could write like Papa,
I'm just not able
But if I had him in this bar right now
I'd drink him under the table.
