editor John Wilson's shortlist for 2014, etc.

1. ART OPENING

If you're in upstate/central New York, here's an idea for today... See you there if you go! I'll be there with some painter friends.

Tonight, an opening in Oneonta at Marten-Mullen.
I'm going with painter friend Ashley Cooper--
our friend Yolanda Sharpe (of Detroit) is acting
chair of the art department at SUNY. One sad note:
artist Gilda Snowden died two days ago.

    1. John Wilson is a great supporter. I am very glad to have him in my corner.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
