OCTOBER 23
TOM HAYDEN was a founding member of SDS, one of the Chicago Seven or Eight, and a lifelong leftie gadfly who in the early 70s did a walking tour of the Hanoi Hilton with his second wife Jane Fonda. I met him once in the mid-90s, but did not form a lasting friendship, not having been shown the memo about him being the only one in the room who gets to talk. Unlike his co-conspirator Jerry Rubin, he never became a Reagan republican, but neither did he become governor of California, Mayor of Los Angeles, or an LA city council member, try as he might. He did, however, become a state senator, and was a champion of progressive causes and animal rights to the end of his life one year ago today at age 76. Go to heaven, Tom.

MAYBELLE CARTER (left) was the blessed issue of the singing Carter Family who electrified Appalachian radio audiences before Appalachia even had electricity. Being an Appalachian, by age 12 she had become mother Maybelle and later still, Johnny Cash's mother-in-law. Apparently she invented the Carter pluck, a form of guitar artistry I could explain if I spoke twang. She reached the end of a final, wasting illness on October 23, 1978. On that same day, punk rock luminary Sid Vicious attempted suicide in a cell at Rikers Island after having murdered his inamorata Nancy Somebodyorother. Maybelle, unlike Sid Vicious and son-in-law Johnny, was never confined in a prison cell to my knowledge, but as I don’t speak twang, there is much about this woman that for me is only guesswork.

THEOPHILE GAUTIER, whose life ended on this day in 1872, inexplicably wore a leaf of Romaine lettuce on his head while posing for this likeness. He was a frequently unwashed travel writer, poet, novelist, aesthete and balletomane of flamboyant insignificance whom one might have passed over altogether in today’s remembrances, but the alternatives included Al Jolson and country music matron Maybelle Carter. When your options are "Mammy" in black face, more of that Hee Haw crap, or an unshaven Gallic fop draping his brow in salades verts, I say go with the frog under the lily pad every time.
