i just heard from a reliable source that Maya Angelou was a raving drunk! How strange this aspect of her personality never made it into the media. Jezus, she could even have been one of the pseudonyms that plague this site! ! !

    Didn't she suffer trauma as a child and spend 5 years of her childhood not talking, and then become a famous poet after more tribulation?I haven't been a fan of her poetry but I might become one.
