See this guy? This is Bob.
It’s his birthday today. He would have been 110 years old if he hadn’t taken his own life in 1936.
He was a bit of an oddball. He lived his whole life in a small town in Texas and never traveled very far from there.
They made a movie about him, though. Well, it was really about his girlfriend. Vincent D’Onofrio played him.
Bob wrote a lot stuff in his short life and people still read it today. I have five big trade paperbacks in the bookshelf to my right that is filled with his words.
Bob created this guy:
So, Happy Birthday, Bob!
