Eduardo: I don't know how many people caught this, but on the final episode of The West Wing recently, where Jimmy Smits is being installed as President, there is a scene where his staff is going over the agenda of the inauguration, and at one point, a staffer says something like, "...And then there will be a poem read by Jimmy Santiago Baca..."

Ha! Right on. If he dreamt up Milkweed from "Blood in Blood" he is genius.
