I dedicate this Google Doodle of Franz Kafka to my college professor who introduced me to Rimbaud, Baudelaire and Kafka. When people know you by your last name you must be important. Those are my holy trinity, perhaps unholy trinity. Happy birthday to one of my favorite buggers, Franz Kafka. Today is his 130th birthday. I don’t get the celebrations of birthdays after death. Once you die there should be no more birthday celebrations. If you are a zombie then I get it.
