Kim Morgan: For Valentine's Day: Celebrate With Six Disastrous Dates
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Valentine's Day. If you at all care about the day (though many of us pretend not to) it can be a sweet time to remind your partner how much you love them. That's very nice. It can also, well, sicken. Yes, yes, people can be wonderful on that day but they can also exhibit an icky display of public affection (those horrifying balloon bouquets, those stilted dinner dates riddled with awkward pauses) and reveal passive agressive manipulations, aggressive aggressive manipulations and gift giving gluttony.

I think, lonely people, that sometimes it's better to be alone on the 14th of February. And I say this with a significant other whom I plan on giving the day off to save both our sanity.

Forty years later, he finds himself back among the teenagers and lefties he spent four years with, remembering their nicknames and their stories, many of which ended badly, as he walks through the gallery at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. A New York gallery exhibition is coming after the one in Berkeley closes in January, and all of this comes as a surprise to Brown, who gave up photography to build hot tubs in 1975. The 2400 Block of Telegraph Avenue 1969-1973, and a copy was left behind in an estate sale, where a gallery owner bought it. [...] Rag Theatre, spelled differently, was a clothing store that drew its own crowd to the block. Easy to spot with its striped awning, the Med, as Caffe Mediterraneum is called, is where Dustin Hoffman is sitting when he see ...
