I purchased a copy of the January issue of Poetry magazine at Barnes & Noble in Union Station in Washington, D.C., recently. The veteran print magazine, founded in Chicago in 1912 by Harriet Monroe and published monthly by the Poetry Foundation, is celebrating its centennial. Check out the magazine website here.

Rick Santorum for President?

On my personal blog, today, I've written about "Will They Learn to Love Mitt.... Or the Tale of the Activist Judges."
