Sorry all! I had turned on moderation because of a spambot, but neglected to actually check on comments...I have not been withholding on purpose. Here is a sampling...and yes, I love the comments on my blog, but when they get hijacked? My god, it's like some wacky descent into a food court/verse hell.**es, Chris, the "me blog" or the puff blog. At least the purpose of those blogs are quite obvious. Much of what we endure for reviewing these days is doing something similar under the guise of objectively offering a book for review to the general public...
Jordan, I wish you blogged again. I miss your blog. It was a favorite, one I checked daily.
Jason, fyi the Poetry Foundation just welcomed Eileen Myles aboard, which was a great decision. They are clearly trying to break the old notion of them being a bastion of verse, and conservative verse at that. Good to see I think.
R. I keep the comments on largely with the hope that more women and other voices who don't take up public space will climb aboard...
I think the whole notion of anonymous commenting is just wrong. Dialog or use that energy in one's work. And yes, good idea not to get into a fight on one's blog--and there are people who are looking for that. Ignore, ignore, ignore.
Pass the tamiflu ineed.
