Moment of Silence: Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Poet and publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti has passed away. He was known for his collection A Coney Island of the Mind. He also launched City Lights, first as a bookstore and later as a press, to promote the kind of literature that upsets applecarts.  I have reviewed a number of books out of there.  

So if you want to remember him, go write something radical, or if you don't write, recommend or buy some instead.
