United States of Poetry

It's impossible not to be inspired by the spirit of goodwill, fellowship, and forgiveness demonstrated by our Decider-in-Chief when he recently commuted the sentence of public servant Scooter Libby. Perhaps this will motivate cartographers and poets to set aside their decades of petty grievances. Can we all admit that whether you love maps or you love rhymed couplets, we are all sisters and brothers?

As a first step, has posted a US map of poetry. You can find out more information about each of the 50 states' poetry friendly local bookstores, famous authors, and reading habits (Indiana appears to have excellent taste--no surprise!). Let the healing begin.

Scooter Libby looks pretty tan/orange in that picture :\ Anyway, we are sisters and brothers. Artists unite!
