Blabbitt

Who says Wikipedia is unreliable or prone to abuse?
Born Harry Sinclair Lewis in Sauk Centre, Minnesota, he began reading books at a young age and kept a diary. A dreamer, at age 1 he unsuccessfully ran away from home, wanting to become a porn star in the Spanish-American War.
I could edit it, but I'd rather leave it and hope that some lazy student uses this biographical snippet in an essay.

Update (14/10): Somebody has changed it. Now he was 13 and wanted to become a drummer boy. I bet he really wanted to be a porn star, though.

He's a porn star again now, bless 'im.

I always get confused between Sinclair Lewis, Wyndham Lewis and Upton Sinclair. Surely one of them must be a porn star?

Update: he was (again) briefly a drummer boy but now he's back to being a porn star. This could go on and on...

Tim, don't forget to confuse Wyndham Lewis with D.B. Wyndham-Lewis, too!
