We are not amused

I should have acknowledged the whimsical J. Bahr for his inspiration for the rant below. It's not directed against him personally, obviously. That is, I don't particularly care that he finds amusing something that I do not find amusing. I just thought it would be a good excuse for going on a friendly but splenetic rampage against my good friends at Poetry magazine, that bastion of dullness.

Whimsy dijo...

No offense taken, JM. I have an overdeveloped need for whimsy.

I've gotten lots of emails over the year complaining about the industrial-ization of poetry (and to some extent, my part in it by maintaining litmag submission resources). I thought this was a pretty funny (well, actually, REALLY funny) petard self-hoisting.

Have a great Fourth.
