- Any recommendations for poems whose subject matter concerns poverty?
- I’m in the market for a new phone. I’d like it to be available for Verizon customers, sync via bluetooth with my Mac, have a decent camera, and be relatively small. Any suggestions?
- This NY Times article on multitasking and productivity would be more interesting if it were to interrogate the notion that the purpose of our lives and our access to information is productivity: produce, produce, produce!
- I spent Friday and Saturday in Asheville at this conference, where I attended two (!) panels on drag kings, featuring performers who were, for the most part, as theoretically savvy as they were sexy.
- In an age where people can be so uptight about who gets to marry whom, it warms my heart to know that I live in a community that celebrates diversity.
- Season two (via Netflix) of The L Word is, so far, better than season one, though the new theme song is stupid. Maybe I’m just more familiar with the characters, but it seems to me that there’s more depth to the storylines as well as a thematic unity among the storylines that wasn’t there before.

the scarecrow wedding is one of the coolest things i’ve seen in a while.
You should have been here to see it in person!
Ideas: Barbara Kingsolver, specifically her bilingual book of poetry titled Otra America. Gwendolyn Brooks, poet.
Go to Dorothea Lange slide show (it is visual poetry on poverty). Here is the web address: http://www.museumca.org/global/art/collections_dorothea_lange.html
