Robert Rahway Zakanitch, 2001

Worth noting:

Arthur Danto, the philosopher who serves as art critic for The Nation, has curated an exhibit entitled The Art of 9/11, which just opened at apexart gallery in Soho. The site is worth visiting for Danto’s words, especially when thought about in the context of our ongoing national catastrophe in the gulf states. I’m sure the show is worth a trip downtown as well.

Meanwhile in Austin, Texas, this year’s University of Texas students are getting an undergrad library completely devoid of books. As somebody who discovered poetry by wandering around a library just to see what might be there, this is a concept that makes me break out in a rash.

Yakima, tho, has a Poetry Pole.

Finally, in Kabul, Love’s Labour’s Lost.
