All from before is now obsolete

100 Haiku paperback $4.29 + shipping on Amazon
kindle $2.99

This book has given "Boxcars on Walnut" (see the ad on the side) a new life, for this reason: small haiku books are clearly the way to go. Putting a thousand in a single volume was clearly beyond my ability to sustain, not to mention do well, and this one in general has a much better chance.

American haiku, 5-7-5, is alive and well. Making a collection of them gives you a single form for every one in the book, and there's something to be said for that. When it's all over, Boxcars on Walnut will be the first of a series.

I was proud to learn that when the president tried to fly into southern Illinois, have a lightning rally at the airport, and leave town fast, a number of people were there to greet him. Someone who owned a farm near the airport allowed their land to be used for a huge "LIAR" sign, visible from the airport. The paid audience, many of whom came from elsewhere, were there to boo the protesters, but there were more protesters. Maybe they can't pay people enough to go to these rallies.

He hasn't been especially good for southern Illinois; he promised to bring back dirty coal, but, I don't think that will do it for southern Illinois, even if he were able to do that. I don't even think they want dirty coal anymore. Hospitals are one of our few remaining industries, and hospitals have been full of black lung for years. Dirty coal is not the answer.

I'll get a picture if I can. All I can say is, VOTE. That stooge you have in there who keeps voting for things like tax cuts for the wealthy, he has to go too.
