    Laurence, I love your haiku! (senryu, I guess)
    And your two stories are fascinating…I would never
    have known about them. This is one educational site!

    (When I first opened this page and read the headline,
    guess what flashed through my mind? After days of
    turkey and making soup with turkey bones…I’ll let
    you imagine, lol!)
    ;)

    Laryalee, yeah – I found those articles today and thought they were quite interesting. I am really glad that you enjoyed them. There is so much interesting news in the world. Honestly, try it – enter anything into google news search and have a look at what comes up. There seems to be news about EVERYTHING.

    And I agree – this is a stellar poem Laurence. Brilliantly wry.

    Thanks Lary and Dick! These are both great readings. I agree, there is SO MUCH news in the world and our zine does (in my opinion) an excellent job of highlighting little known but important events! I hope you guys have a great new year!
