According to TMZ, Rodney King, the man whose videotaped 1991 beating by members of the Los Angeles Police Department helped spark the LA riots, is dead. TMZ reports that its sources say King, who was stopped by police for speeding and reckless driving before the beating, was found dead by his fiancée in a swimming pool. “I obviously still think about that night,” King told the Daily Beast in April of this year. “I still have some pretty bad headaches from that beating. But I don’t let anger take over when the pain comes. It doesn’t help anything.”

It is a delicious thing to write, to be no longer yourself but to move in an entire universe of your own creating. Today, for instance, as man and woman, both lover and mistress, I rode in a forest on an autumn afternoon under the yellow leaves, and I was also the horses, the leaves, the wind, the words my people uttered, even the red sun that made them almost close their love-drowned eyes.
