a. m. bird report: one egret stretched out way up high... one goldfinch (mateless?)... redwings everywhere... robins too... assorted tiny brown finchlike critters... ducks... one unidentified blackbody-brownhead... one unidentified diamond-tailed singer...

and so it continues... very sad & disappointed to see that Thomas Reece, S. J. has "stepped down" from the editorship of America magazine... it appears that there is to be no room for any kind of dialogue around important issues in the (my? our? their? his? God's) rcc...

Invisible Notes
posted at 4:55 PM

time to note again... what a singular, animate, bouyant language we always get over at Hotel Point... keeps a sluggish blogmoper on his toes... e. g. ...

A sudden longing to emerge out of the great green pond-come the call (I am talking about death, poet!)-with duckweed capping me off, leech anklets, and all my poems nicking off like pseudopodia into the scum. by golly and by gosh... & this is the least of j latta's wonders... enough gushing for now... the kids are gone...

noon dismissal because tonight we got.... greatgodamighty... PROM... be safe kids

All that a man has to say or do that can possibly concern mankind, is in some shape or other to tell the story of his love,-to sing; and, if he is fortunate and keeps alive, he will be forever in love. This alone is to be alive to the extremities.

i'm alone... if not lonely... in room a time when normally there'd be a mess of students in here... plucking out the intricacies of some tricky classic text... but not today...

they're off in the wrestling room... sixty-four of them... taking the a. p. literature exam... and i'm left here to stare into the vacuum of... what i've done... how well or not so well i've prepared them for this moment... always knowing/believing that it's not anything i do... but what we do as a group and what they do as individuals... that will make the difference. always knowing that i haven't taught to the test... but that what we've done has had its own value that stretches past the narrow limits of 55 multiple choice questions and three 40-minute essays...

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunning us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

[E] - Trashing the Greens : Reports of Environmentalism's "Death" May be Exaggerated...
In 1992, according to Canada-based Environics Research Group, 17 percent of Americans agreed with the statement that "pollution [is] necessary to preserve jobs." In 2004, a whopping 29 percent agreed with it. In the same time span, there was also a significant increase in the percentage who think that the father of a family "must be master in his own house" (52 percent, compared to 21 percent in Canada), and who agree with the statement that "a widely advertised product is probably good" (45 percent).
