  1. You’ve got a lot here, well worth looking at in some detail (as a friend of mine told me). Glanced at the Obama not-yet-a-poem about hope. Have you noticed since writing it just how much he — and those like him — are really needed? The right wing obstinacy never ends. And its ‘defeat’ isn’t in any way assured.

    Myself — have been much more film oriented than theater-oriented, but my respect for the latter has increased quite a bit over time and exposure.

    “An independent, opinionated bookseller who can recommend books to you is one of the greatest privileges of an free nation and an intellectual community. We lose that privilege when we don’t defend the independents.”
    I heart this.
