Birthday Letters

When life gives you lemons, forget the lemonade and drink an Arnold Palmer. Also, remember that at least you aren't Ted Hughes, who cannot escape his desperately suicidal family members. There's his first wife, Sylvia, who died at the age of 30 via gas oven. Then there's his second wife, Assia Wevill, who decided to kill their daughter along with herself. Now there's his son Nicholas, who hung himself 46 years after his mother's suicide.

Poetry is good, but in the end we're most interested in the poets.
