And how exactly did he "exhaust most of the northwest"? Oh yeah, getting fired or run out of town for being a legitimate sociopath.
Laura Lazarus Stern causes eating disorders in the Women at Carnegie Mellon University because she is paranoid that profiessional associates of EECS faculty member, Stern care about anything other than work. She is the epitomy of "the wives will think something is going on" thereby promoting discrimination. Also, she's fat and wears tight t shirts -- showing little self-respect.
Another great story Kelechi. Good job.

Lots of love,
Why were you called to my mother and my boyfriend Bonnie Underwood and OULAY Underwood. At the easy 8 motel in Lancaster ca. And what was your cellular signal doing in my room? Meaning you had to be either under my floor or in the plumbing
Steven Sherrill will be at Classic Lines (5825 Forbes Ave. Squirrel Hill) reading and signing his new book Joy, PA on Friday, March 27th, 7 - 9pm.
An excellent book. The explanatory of human life on the personal, cultural and universal levels very clear and without subterfuge. Re-reading various poems is a form of revisiting them and expressly intending to do so. These are wise, flesh and blood poems that have lived, loved and laughed in a candid, warm, open manner. Forthrightness and intellect merged. Ed Ochester is one of the best American poets there is as are many of the poets he refers to in his beautiful poems and we are privileged to read about them in such a vivid poetic context. The poems almost engage the reader in a form of literary time travel. We see stages of the poet's life and benchmarks of various events so clearly. These poems are exemplars of a human being with spiritual kindness, emotional maturity and insight engaged on the page.
I am so grateful for finding HERSFoundation and for Nora and Rick to publish the H Word Book. I have several copies and also donated the book to the local libraries. This is something all of you can do. Get the book into your libraries! Tiger
I have read Shaw's "Argot". The reviewer is spot-on. The "things" Shaw writes about come into clear view as portals to memory and impression. The "thing" vs. "idea" break probably explains why I recall so many of his poems visually, as though I could also tell you the exactly length of shadows and the height of the sun without mention. Poignant stuff.
To Fred Shaw:
Fred: hello from Ireland. I continue to admire your work whenever it is available to me. This review of ARGOT sounds exactly the right note through I haven't seen the book - the review captures the authenticity and gritty resonance of your work insofar as I remember it when last we met in Ireland. Very best wishes: MICHAEL COADY

Ah, those left-leaning East Enders, they sure do know how to tell a good story. I read and enjoyed this book very much.
As a teacher, I respect and honor the intricate word webs woven by our best poets. Jason is one of these masters of the craft. Where Leonard Cohen ( one of my favorites) plays with reader's perception, Jason presents his landscapes and observations in an almost photographic sweep of images. You may have to read and re-read to gauge his emotion of the moment, but you'll be rewarded once you connect with his both weary and energetic sense of being. His travels have sharpened his vision. The daily mundane takes on some majesty here ...no easy task. Buy this little volume, brew some coffee or tea and go on a little journey for an hour or two. It's a worthy ride.
I do live in Venezuela. And yes, I would definitely love not living here and get all my family out of here because I know what this government is about.
Back in the 80's this was way too different from what it is now.
You should come again, live here, work here, spend the whole day in a line just to buy milk, shampoo or flour and then we could talk about how great things are. Don't you think?
Firstly, your presence here in the US at all means that you are likely a member of the wealthy minority, so you views are not representative of a majority of Venezuelans.
I did live in Venezuela for almost two years - back in the early 1980s working for an oil-field service company. Mostly I remember it as a country with great majority of people living is extreme poverty and a small wealthy elite, and an absolutely horrible highway and urban infrastructure with only unregulated jitneys (por puestos) for public transit in Maracaibo and Caracas. It was ruled by a phony democracy of two tweedledum and tweededee parties, AD and COPEI, similar to the phony democracy we "enjoy" here in the USA.
I have heard from numerous people reporting that things in Venezuela are much better now, and most of the current problems are due to economic sabotage by wealthy business interests. The PSUV is doing nothing much different from other other social democracies like Norway have done to create the most successful egalitarian societies in the world. If the Venezuelan upper classes would participate and provide constructive criticism as needed instead of sabotaging the entire project and engaging in violence - using the contemptible Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" as their manual, Venezuelans could achieve Norway-level living standards too.
