closer to the grill

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 6:43 pm

Distractions have kept me from drafting

either poetry or punditry so far today.  But,

you still deserve some good haiku:


shutters thrown open

a fly

straight in




autumn chill . . .

we scootch our lawnchairs

closer to the grill


flyswatter horiz




first kiss

deep in the woods . . .

sunbeams filter down



from School’s Out (Press Here, 1999)

for two weeks,

one lone duck at the river–

death or divorce?

Prof. B is Freeped out!  The folks at DailyKos have tried to

freep” the results of Prof. Bainbridge’s poll “What’s Up with

George Bush?”.  (prior post, and our answer)  Steve is hoping

some Right-Wing group will pile on from the conservative

perspective, to help (1) balance things out, and/or (2) pump

up his numbers.

Uncool?  Yes, we’re so uncool that we just learned

the term “freep” today.   It seems the conservative

activists at  perfected the online

practice of slanting polls and attempting to influence

website polls in an organized manner.  Creepy.  Bleepy.


tiny check  AcronymFinder says that “FREEP” stands 

for “Detroit Free Press” and “Free“.

Who knew?
