Alex Lemon

We just want to take a moment here to thank Alex Lemon (Issue 1) for acknowledging us in his newest book of poetry, Hallelujah Blackout (Milkweed, Feb. 28). His poems, "It’s Hard to Tell Who Will Love You the Best" and "Spotless" first appeared in these pages, and it says so right in Hallelujah Blackout. Very cool.

Thanks for everything, Alex.

Check out Alex's review of Li-Young Lee's knew book of poems.

Whistling Shade Winter Issue

An interesting Editor's note from Whistling Shade Editor, Joel Van Valin (Click on "From the Whistler" in the top left of the screen once you get to the site). Although I can't say I agree with his take on Joyce and creativity, this is still an introduction to the Winter issue that preps one's brain to dig into the content that follows.

And look: Whistling Shade will be publishing books soon, too.



What Light

For readers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area there is a great event happening on Sunday. Magers & Quinn and mnartists.org are hosting the What Light reading, celebrating the third year of the What Light poetry series. Past winners Margaret Hasse, Jen March, Todd Pederson, and Greg Watson will be reading, Chris Osgood Director of Artists Services at Springboard for the Arts will "wax poetic on the topic of wine and offer samples from his portfolio of wines." This will be a good time: poetry and wine on a Sunday, how can it go wrong? It's taking place at Magers & Quinn in uptown at 5:00 Sunday. Go support local artists and exercise your right to drunk on a Sunday afternoon.

Stupid, stupid, stupid

If Dustin and I get around to it we're going to write more about the stimulus package being proposed and just how stupid it is and how it proves that "trickle-down" economics don't work and, how, after years of spending wildly beyond my means, I may be "unpatriotic" and put my government check in the bank and...well, just read this for now.
