Robert Mapplethorpe - Wikipedia
His work featured an array of subjects, including celebrity portraits, male and female nudes , self-portraits, and still-life images. A exhibition of Mapplethorpe's work, titled Robert Mapplethorpe: The Perfect Moment , sparked a debate in the United States concerning both use of public funds for "obscene" artwork and the Constitutional limits of free speech in the United States. He had three brothers and two sisters. Mapplethorpe took his first photographs in the late s or early s using a Polaroid camera.
John Wesley Hardin
Hardin often got into trouble with the law from an early age. He killed his first man at the age of 15, claiming he did so in self-defense. Pursued by lawmen for most of his life, in at the age of 23, he was sentenced to 24 years in prison for murder. At the time of sentencing, Hardin claimed to have killed 42 men,  while contemporary newspaper accounts attributed 27 deaths to him. He was well known for exaggerating or fabricating stories about his life and claimed credit for many killings that cannot be corroborated.
Fresh out of the shower, I lay back on my bed, closed my legs , and struggled to navigate the position and my i-phone in much the same awkward way I imagine Stephen Hawking might. I managed to snap the foot of my bathrobe, the corner where my wall meets my ceiling, then finally my cocker spaniel's ass, but at least I was close on that one given that his tail was hacked by his previous owner, which leaves his asshole starkly exposed for all who dare walk behind him. I hit 'send,' and received some thinly veiled complaints. Just kidding.
