At the swimming hole

| No Comments

You descend from the diving board
and crash through the surface
of the sudden cold

now you are submerged
in silent green luminescence
and for one instant
the mind is clear and still

SUV for Tom Glavine

| No Comments

It's great that Tom Glavine has won 300 games and received lots of formal recognition for it. He's a remarkable athlete and has conducted himself admirably both on and off the field. But I hope I am not the only one who finds it disgusting and perverse to reward a millionaire with an environmentally hostile thing like an SUV. What on earth is the point?

In other news, however, the Mets did kick the Marlins' asses today, which is as it should be.
