Also born today ...

... James Laughlin, who founded New Directions, surely one of the great publishing houses. If anyone deserves never to be forgotten, he's one. He was also - and it is awful to say this as an afterthought - a real poet: The Invisible Person by James Laughlin : The Poetry Foundation.

Laughlin was a true saint of literature. Maybe he was just a saint.
