Most Popular Poets et al.

I see that Garrison Keillor is at it again he's compiled another poetry anthology, "Good Poems for Hard Times." His earlier anthology was simply titled "Good Poems". I'm not sure how this fellow finds the time for all he undertakes. Ant any rate, the second anthology is due out this fall. I'm thinking he needs to hurry.... cause hard times are here!

Three Cheers for Emily Lloyd... She just had a poem accepted for Bedside Guide to No Tell Motel.
