I'm at the White House
for the State of the Union Address tweetup. Follow me, ask questions to @DeMistyB or ask questions here. I’ll present them to the panel. You can find the panel we will be questioning here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/state-of-the-union-2012 . I’m prob’y the least techno-literate here. Do you have a question for the panel?

Feeling this love/hate thing for AWP (hey, I don’t even have a...
I'm sitting here listening to Frank Black
on Spotify, mysteriously on the verge of tears. These aren’t necessarily sad songs—but there’s something bluesy about the whole evening. Me, sitting here at my ‘puter, playing ‘puter mahjong and life is just continuing on the status quo. Did I mention I got poems accepted? Yep, that’s one of my un-voiced (and un-written, really) resolutions for—what...
Entitled Black Class
