American Minute with Bill Federer Preacher bought guns and passed them out - Henry Ward Beecher - "Beecher Bibles" He was the most popular preacher in American in the middle 1800s. His sister, Harriett Beecher Stowe wrote the anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom's Cabin in 1852. He purchased the chains that held John Brown in prison, dragging them across the stage and stomping on them as he preached against slavery. He supported women voting and Chinese immigration. And he bought guns and shipped them to Kansas to fight slavery. His name was Henry Ward Beecher. A graduate of Amherst College, Henry Ward Beecher had thousands attend his enormous Plymouth Church in Brooklyn, New York, including Abraham Lincoln, Walt Whitman and Mark Twain. Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., wrote a limerick about Henry Ward Beecher and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle mentioned him in a Sherlock Holmes mystery novel. Gutzon Borglum, creator of Mount Rushmore, sculpted a statue of him. To highlight the evils of slavery, Henry Ward Beecher held simul ...

Thanks to Joe Belogi, I am reminded that today is the 137th anniversary of the birth of Carl Sandburg (1878-1967), true inheritor of the mantle of Walt Whitman and one of the great voices of my lifetime as a champion of common people everywhere, not to say one of the greatest American poets of the 20th century. That '137' figure is as a bell knelling the passage of my own time: I had graduated from high school a little before he died, and Sandburg had been a constant presence in my childhood due to my parents' love of his verse and his frequent appearances on network television. (Read that last bit again and weep - a poet on high-profile TV programs, often. Nevermore.) We who grew up in Illinois took an especial pride in Sandburg - he had been born in Galesburg and spent the greater part of his life around Chicago, the topic of many of his poems and more often than not an allegory for the Midwest and the country as a whole. As a folk musician and aficionado of that music, I loved that when Sandburg retire ...

Simplicity is the glory of expression. — Walt Whitman
What I Learned from Paper Towns: 1. Ben is an *** But Ben is Ben. 2. Omnictionary should be real 3. If you find yourself traveling for twenty-one hours, waiting for four more hours for the next stop to the nearest BP and you really need to pee, a beer bottle can be an option 4. You can use metaphors but the metaphors you choose matters. 5. It's amazing how we fall in love from a distance but when we get closer, we realize that the person we thought we knew was a whole different person after all. 6. We are balloons and maybe there will come a time when we will break away from our strings and we will fly away with the wind. 7. In times of miscalculations and intense research, you really need a friend like Radar. 8. You will creep your pants out when you hear the word "Honeybunny" (esp when Ben says it) 9. Margo Roth Spiegelman is not the Margo Roth Spiegelman we all knew. 10. You really need to read the Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman 11. If you listen to bands like The Mountain Goats, you have no idea ...

Can we shut some lanes down on the Walt Whitman Bridge so Chris Christie gets stuck for a few hours?

Introductory essay for "Sea Drift" is now complete. That finishes this extravaganza, which was even more satisfying to me than "A Fateful Lightning Loosed" - primarily because it is not overly concerned with killing, maiming, death. Of The Sea, By The Sea, And For The Sea Great works of art are inextricably linked to the time and place in which they emerge into the light of day. This is why we don’t find Faberge eggs in hen houses, and don’t critique them in the light of chickens. Walt Whitman's sea-related poems are genuine products of the Golden Age of whaling in America. They are salt-and-spray-tinged offerings reflecting the psyche of the nation at a time when adventuresome and dangerous seagoing was not a mere alternative lifestyle, it was a much-favored lifestyle availing the adventurer chances of great profit, social acceptance and advancement, and a form of escapism for young men of the day who, like most boys of any era, envision themselves as invincible. It would, as well, be a shame not to ...

Sometimes I accidentally say Walt Whitman instead of Walter White when talking about Breaking Bad. Walt Whitman. Meth.
What is the one thing we all need most in life? It’s not money, fancy clothes, material possessions or selfish indulgences. It’s a sense of “relevance”, that what we say and do matters, that we can still make a difference in life. My dad is an author. He turns 84 years young this week. An acclaimed journalist, he has penned 27 books, many of which became top sellers. One, “The Long Pass”, was even inducted into the Presidential Library by Richard Nixon in 1970. But he is a modest man now. Professional success has eluded him for years. Time has a sinister way of humbling us, making us feel vulnerable and meek. And I was fearful that he might be losing his own sense of relevance. Until today. Poppa Lou’s latest book about the Clemson Tigers, published three weeks ago, not only broke into Amazon’s “Top 100 Sports Books” today, but it is currently ranked at Wow! Talk about an unexpected and amazing feat. “Excess of sorrow laughs,” Walt Whitman once wrote. “And excess of joy weeps.” ...

"I think I could turn and live with the animals, they are so placid and self contained; I stand and look at them long and long. They do not sweat and whine about their condition; They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins; They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God; Not one is dissatisfied-not one is demented with the mania of owning things; Not one kneels to another, nor his kind that lived thousands of years ago; Not one is responsible or industrious over the whole earth." — Walt Whitman

A Letter to America by Margaret Atwood Dear America: This is a difficult letter to write, because I'm no longer sure who you are. Some of you may be having the same trouble. I thought I knew you: We'd become well acquainted over the past 55 years. You were the Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck comic books I read in the late 1940s. You were the radio shows -- Jack Benny, Our Miss Brooks. You were the music I sang and danced to: the Andrews Sisters, Ella Fitzgerald, the Platters, Elvis. You were a ton of fun. You wrote some of my favorite books. You created Huckleberry Finn, and Hawkeye, and Beth and Jo in Little Women, courageous in their different ways. Later, you were my beloved Thoreau, father of environmentalism, witness to individual conscience; and Walt Whitman, singer of the great Republic; and Emily Dickinson, keeper of the private soul. You were Hammett and Chandler, heroic walkers of mean streets; even later, you were the amazing trio, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Faulkner, who traced the dark labyrinth ...

Sea Shepherd Goes Where Many Others Fear to Venture. Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!

Nineteen hours through heavy swells and cold spray in a courageous act of seamanship. This is Jessie’s account of the crossing. By Jessie Treverton It has been two months since Operation Grindstop. Two months without a single whale being killed. As a result tensions have been escalating amongst the whalers. The Faroese whale killers are getting angrier every day and becoming more determined to kill whales. Sea Shepherd volunteers however are even more determined to make sure that the slaughter does not happen! The Faroes are a self-governing Danish archipelago, just over 2 . ...

"I wish I could translate the hints about the dead young men And women, And the hints about old men and mothers, and the offspring Taken soon out of their laps. What do you think has become of the young and old men? And what do you think has become of the women and Children? They are alive and well somewhere, The smallest sprout shows there is really no death, And if ever there was it led forward life, and does not wait at The end to arrest it, And ceas'd the moment life appear'd. All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses, And to die is different from what any one supposed, and Luckier." --from "Song of Myself VI" -Walt Whitman

That poem was written by Walt Whitman, and was referenced in the film Dead Poets Society by Robin Williams' character John Keating
I am STILL shocked and weirdly ...broken... at the news of Robin Williams - why? This feels more than the sad loss of an entertainer.  O Captain! My Captain! our fearful trip is done; The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won; The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring: But O heart! heart! heart!O the bleeding drops of red,Where on the deck my Captain lies,Fallen cold and dead. O Captain! My Captain! rise up and hear the bells; Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills; For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding; For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning; Here captain! dear father!This arm beneath your head;It is some dream that on the deck,You've fallen cold and dead. It spoke of the shock after the loss of President Lincoln, but tonight I am reminded that while I learned & preformed the whole Walt Whitman poem at my arts high school, my ...
In this masterful scene from “Dead Poets Society,” Williams’ students pay tribute to him in most unique way. Throughout film, Williams’ character takes his students on journey of personal growth and character development. In earlier scenes, he has them stand on their desks and look around to see the world with “a different perspective;” and after reading a passage from Walt Whitman, challenges them to address him “O Captain! My Captain!” if they so dared. “Seize the day,” if you so dare! “Make your lives extraordinary!

ON THIS DAY. July 4th American Independence Day 1776 - The amended Declaration of Independence, prepared by Thomas Jefferson, was approved and signed by John Hancock, the President of the Continental Congress in America. 1802 - The U.S. Military Academy officially opened at West Point, NY. 1803 - The Louisiana Purchase was announced in newspapers. The property was purchased, by the U.S. from France, was for $15 million (or 3 cents an acre).

Maya Angelou is not a great poet. The greatest poets are William Blake, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost and Edgar Allen Poe. All white males.
10 very American poems to read or re-read and enjoy during the 4th of July week: 1, The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, 1845 2. Song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1855 3. Oh Captain, My Captain by Walt Whitman, 1865 4. Casey at the Bat by Ernest L. Thayer, 1888 5. Because I could not Stop for Death by Emily Dickinson, 1890 6. Fog by Carl Sandburg, 1916 7. Renascence by Edna St. Vincent Millay, 1912 8. Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost, 1922 9. The Hollow Men by T. S. Elliot, 1925 10. Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes, 1951
As we approach the 4th of July holiday, I want to thank all of you for the opportunity to serve. We are so fortunate to live in a great city, a great state, and a great country. We are living off the sacrifices made by generations of Americans who fought for freedom, liberty, justice, and equality. Our founders weren't just the signers of the Declaration of Independence. They were also leaders like Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., George Marshall, Samuel Gompers, Frederick Douglas, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, Susan B. Anthony, Earl Warren, Walt Whitman, and Theodore Roosevelt, amongst others. Let us also not forget the millions of Americans who sacrificed their lives in war. No matter our political, religious, and philosophical differences, we are all Americans who believe in the dream of a more perfect union and the opportunity we all should have to pursue happiness.

What a bittersweet day, I am not going to cry because it is over, I will cry because a lot of you I have known for years and I am so proud to say, "I knew them when." When I read the paper, Sports Illustrated, and Fortune 500 and see your faces in there for all your accomplishments in life I will smile. As you embark on this new chapter in your life always be proud of who you are, proud of where you have come from and proud that you have touched so many lives during your journey. Congratulations Walt Whitman 2014 Wildcats. Be good to you and be good to all you meet. Love you forever!!!

June 21st The Great Seal of the United States — Back Side The back of the Great Seal is sometimes called its spiritual side. It shows a pyramid built of thirteen levels of stone, representing the thirteen original states in the union. Since ancient times, pyramids have been symbols of strength and duration. As the poet Walt Whitman suggested, the pyramid is shown as unfinished because although the architects of the United States laid its foundations, each generation has the duty of building a strong, good nation. Above the pyramid is a triangle containing the eye of Providence, which watches over the Union. The Latin motto Annuit Coeptis means “He [God] has favored our undertakings.” On the base of the pyramid is the Roman numeral MDCCLXXVI (1776), the date of the Declaration of Independence. Beneath the pyramid a scroll reads Novus Ordo Seclorum, meaning “A New Order of the Ages,” signifying that 1776 marked the beginning of the American era.

Walt Whitman is finished with his American fervour and rebellous poetic style.Now I am struggling with William Butler Yeats' Romantic Elements. In my frequent struggle I also need to deal with other great modern poets like Robert Frost, Dylan Thomas & Wysten Huge Auden.I might have to ignore Seamus Heaney coz I do not have enough time to make business with. So I am very busy in fact they deserve my full attention
America - Walt Whitman - Scrape It Off the Bottom of Your Brain.
There was a rather humorous misstep on one of the examination scripts this year. When considering whether we can correctly ascribe rights to comatose people, one student referred to "a man in a comma." That man must have been scrunched up. The funniest misstep that I've encountered on an examination script occurred 17 years ago. While discussing Robert Nozick's famous scenario involving Wilt Chamberlain, one student referred to "the famous American basketball player Walt Whitman."
"Man's little day in haste we spend ". This line is from the poem written by A) William Shakespeare B) Lewis Carroll C) Thomas Hardy D) Walt Whitman
I was having trouble sleeping. Something made me pick back up Howl by Allen Ginsberg. I really and truly feel that true love can begin with, " I am with you in Rockland". If you have never read him- or, if you could, start with Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman to glean the essence of the cadence and structure. Whitman was perhaps one of the biggest influences for inspiration and scheme in regards to Allen Ginsberg. Allen knew history and was able to "jenga" it- essentially he used writing from before to build his own tower. Who is doing that now? Read it! Wait, actually, decide for yourself. Experience it your own way. Unreal how much time we spend on the social media today, like the Kardashians and how soon we forget our modern day Ramones, Ginsbergs, Cobains, etc.. - they fall too quickly from our thoughts, yet the words of our rebel game changers are the ones that we should listen to. I am just wondering, where we have come from, how do we honor it and at this incredible moment in time of technological ...
Walter White Whale Sperm for whalers is meth to jailers. Leviathink about it: it's she in the deep blue sea, faring. It's he in his underwear, under there... Cooking! Caring! Daring! Upon a tripod of bones rests pegleg regret. Walter White Whale: Watch it! "There she..." "Ahab!" Blows she. "No parmacetti for thee. Leave me be!" That pipe's hiss. Amiss. Vengeance but a harpoon's fling away. Away the Pequod sailed, however brackish the fail entailed. Avail! Walt Whitman wooed while White Whale whined. A rock hound, wheelchair-bound. How frail. Your learn'd astronomer's tale's gone stale. Cachalot on the whale-line? Knot! Nor a chemist with his cook. Woe is thine eternity should thee continue to look. Herman's (Mel)villain clicks again and again: "Mind my ambergris, old friend." Trywork's trypots emblazon the doubloon. Gilligan's Heisenberg, ever hoarse: "Blue skies to you, Hank, of course." New Mexico sun peels cracked the sand dune. Lord of Leviathan. My, how you've become bored thin boarded in. She swings ...
Walt Whitman believed in the strength of the American natural world as evidenced by the vitality of its grass.
Without exception, the response to the Post-Gutenberg Revolution, by traditional publishers and the major chain bookstores, as well as most of the independents, has been to cry foul and seek ways to circle the wagons, attempting to close off all the more to the change that they are indisputably incapable of controlling. I believe the only thing that will work is to open the front door to writers like these self-publishers: Mark Twain, James Fenimore Cooper, Walt Whitman, William Blake, John Milton, Henry Adams, Ezra Pound, e. e. cummings, Edgar Allan Poe, James Joyce, D. H. Lawrence, Gertrude Stein, Anais Nin, Carl Sandburg, Stephen Crane, Laurence Sterne, Thomas Paine, William Wordsworth, Jane Austen, John Ruskin, George Bernard Shaw, Rudyard Kipling, Thomas Hardy, A.E.

Allen Ginsberg ( June 3, 1926 – April 5, 1997) From Poets.org On June 3, 1926, Allen Ginsberg was born in Newark, New Jersey. The son of Louis and Naomi Ginsberg, two Jewish members of the New York literary counter-culture of the 1920s, Ginsberg was raised among several progressive political perspectives. A supporter of the Communist party, Ginsberg’s mother was a nudist whose mental health was a concern throughout the poet’s childhood. According to biographer Barry Miles, “Naomi’s illness gave Allen an enormous empathy and tolerance for madness, neurosis, and psychosis.” As an adolescent, Ginsberg savored Walt Whitman, though in 1939, when Ginsberg graduated high school, he considered Edgar Allan Poe his favorite poet. Eager to follow a childhood hero who had received a scholarship to Columbia University, Ginsberg made a vow that if he got into the school he would devote his life to helping the working class, a cause he took seriously over the course of the next several years. He was admitted ...
