I am enjoying reading my way through the issue. So far, the poem that has made me laugh out loud was Julie Steiner's, but I have liked a lot of the others, too.

Congratulations to Melissa and all concerned with the production, as well as the contributors, on another star-bespangled shaft of light. Bridezilla, a beard, a ballade, a bikini . . . and that's just some of the bees a-buzz in the USA's corking bi-annual verse compendium.

Melissa,
The tribute to John is just wonderful, and I've sent a link to John's wife, his daughters and his sister; they will love it.

I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the issue.

Congratulations to you, the Light brigade, and all the contributors!

Jayne

A wonderful issue! Congratulations, J.D., on the great appreciation by Joshua Mehigan. So many laughs in this issue when I (and perhaps others?) needed them!
