New Crush: Jimmy Santiago Baca

Look at this fine macho! Where have I been? I adore his work, especially the first three books, but I've never noticed how handsome he is. What a kissable face!

Jimmy, I like red chile on my eggs.

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..."

He also wrote the screenplay for and acts in "Blood In, Blood Out" aka "Bound By Honor."

JSB was the first "contemporary" poet I ever read.

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