Mexico City starts grope-free buses for women

...women have long complained of abuse from men taking advantage of overcrowding to sneak in an inappropriate grab.

I can't tell you how many times I've been pinched and groped on Mexican buses! Mexican men have busy hands.

Did I enjoy it? I'm not telling.

Well, I'm back in Hamilton, NY. It's freaking cold! I'm so observant.

AWP! I'm really looking forward to attending it this year. Granted, I will be a badgeless outcast, but who cares!
*
Will you be at AWP? I hope so! I hear this writer will be there to give a "hush hush" reading! Tony, you can finally get your copy of T.D.C signed!
*
The latest installment of Boxcar Poetry Review is up. It features a conversation between Ivy Alvarez and Lee Herrick. Part two of the conversation will appear in the next issue.
*
I hope those with badges at AWP won't point at the badgeless and scream "Unclean!"
*
Have I mentioned how much I love my office?
*
Mitt Romney is sexy.
*
C. Dale will be wearing other people's badges as he walks around AWP! Must be nice to have more than one AWP badge! I should've gone to med school.
*
Did you make the list? Of course not! I did.
*
And no: Dan Brown won't be at AWP. I made that up.
*
You know that Mark Yakich book of poems, Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting to Cross? The title has been occurring to me at different moments lately. Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting to Piss. Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting for their Dogs to Piss.
