Perhaps I should mention that the newly elected mayor has just named me Poet Laureate of The MOB. What is the MOB? It is the Minnesota Organization of Bloggers. (Technically I now live in Iowa, but rules aren't stringent.) In the wake of twitter and other e-fads, the MOB isn't what it once was, but it still is a means for bringing folks together and I like that.
Is this a great honor? Why yes, of course it is! And it is also pure tomfoolery of the best sort. In that spirit, I will have to write some laud or ode to the Mayor. But not today. This prose just takes it out of me.
