    Mr. Bukowski appears to handle that thin line between insanity and genius quite well. Few do it as well, I think. (Report) Reply

    GTFO off this page with your hooker talk! You clearly have some kind of an attention problem. And do you really want to do that to a dead guy? ! Wacko floozy pundit.
