EE! EE! EE! I plugged in an e.e. cummings poem and couldn't tell the difference:
Picasso XXIII Picasso XXIII Picasso you make us
Things which bulge:
grunting lungs pumped full of
Nothing grabbed with circular shrieking tightness
solid screams whisper. Lumberman of
sharp thick mind you make us
shrill presents always shut in the
black unbunged
Something gushes

POETRY MEN: OK. While all you self-absorbed jackasses are busy plugging your own URL's into the magic poem machine (You know who you are!), I'm providing a service for humanity! For instance, Robert Fisk, Poet and Gutter of Protestors!

TYPOS OF THE TIMES: Remember last week when we, the almighty New York Times, said so unequivocally that "at least 170,000 artifacts were carried away" from the National Museum of Iraq? Actually, it looks like it was more like, um, maybe twenty-five. Whooooops!

WHAT'S KEN LAYNE DOING IN MY IPOD? Nice tune there, Mick. And actually fits very nicely in the ITunes library sandwiched between The Pogues' "Worms" and Kelly Willis' "Wrapped."

HAPPY 70TH WILLIE!
Do you know why you're here?
Yes, there's great confusion on earth
And the power that is has concluded the following
Perfect man has visited earth already and his voice was heard
The voice of imperfect man must now be made manifest
And I have been selected as the most likely candidate
Yes, the time is April, and therefore you, a Taurus, must go
To be born under the same sign twice adds strength
And this strength, combined with wisdom and love, is the key
