Birth-day

Darger detail
I share a birthday with really minor luminaries, including David Cassidy, Dave Letterman, and Claire Danes, but now I learn that I also was born on the same day as outsider artist, well-read pop culture hound, and possible serial killer Henry Darger. The American Folk Art Museum is celebrating the 113th anniversary of Darger's birth by reading from the last, unbound volume of his typewritten magnum opus, In the Realms of the Unreal. (Many large scans are available here.)
