Maybe I'm crazy, but what are the odds that the Marilyn Dumont in this story, who was told by her landlord that she'd be evicted unless she took down the partisan campaign sign she had on the property, is in fact Marilyn Dumont the formidable author of A Really Good Brown Girl and That Tongued Belonging? She's from the area of Alberta they discuss in the article. The Kegedonce website says in 2007 she was finishing up an MFA at UBC - she could easily be done that by now. I can't seem to find any updated information on where she is these days.
Also, hey, go read some Dumont!
