Sharp Sand: Terror Alert: Orange (sort of)

But I don't think many are going to be taken in by this shameless piece of politicking. ... we might be surprised...

'Senioritis' can be lethal to students

This summer, U. of I. has joined other top schools in sending out hundreds of letters to the slacking seniors, giving some until Sunday to explain what caused their stellar grade point averages to plunge. For those who fail to respond or who offer unsatisfactory explanations, the school is responding harshly by revoking offers of admission.

intersting that they talk of the hepworth as having a leaf-like shape... suzanne has called it a flame... and i think it has skeletal/pelvic connections... she has clearly tapped into some really fundamental/elemental... archaic... form here...

mom wrote me last monday and i have rudely not replied... this is so typical of a week in which the days have vanished... on the commute... in the classroom... and being so tired and forgetful at the end of the day... anyway...

she writes that the U. S. Newswire link (back on monday) is to a company run by two of my cousins... and sure enough there they are... the mccarren boys... with whom i'm out of touch forever and ever...

and she writes that i left a shirt at her place... which astonishes me because i am never the kind of person who leaves a shirt where it doesn't belong... but i guess i did...

and she writes that i never wrote directly about meeting mr. wendell berry... and she is correct... yes... i did meet him and speak with him for a very brief moment... and literally look up to him because he is a tall southern gentleman... and he signed my copy of The Wild Birds... because it was my first encounter with the people of port william... and the whole evening... last thursday in jeffersonville indiana... organized and ably moderated by clark county commissioner david lewis who had invited me down for it... was just... perfect...

talk to you soon mom...

Poetry in politics

Flowers, who is 38 years old, says he can't remember another candidate for president quoting poetry in his lifetime. He says doing so requires bravery because it's easy for anti-intellectuals to make fun of poetry.
