Gene Chandler is the Duke of Earl's "real" name.

I don't think it's actually his birth name, though.

I can see why it was moderate. It has that generic Motown sound of the time.

You know who was really good in the early 70s? Bill Withers.

I'd be in a bunk bed at camp, and I would listen to "Lean On Me" when I was 11. This was the start of me feeling aesthetic things. Before then, I thought all poetry and stuff was "sissy stuff."

^^^ that was pretty advanced/mature of you at age 11 to be able to grok such. I didn't "get it" until I was in my 20s, if then.

I was mature enough, also, to count my mosquito bites one night when I went to the latrine. I had 240 of them.

I had a few moments of lucidity during that time--but there was still much that was confusing to me.

Yep...at this YMCA camp, they called the bathroom the "latrine."
