I read the news today, oh boy…

Every Wednesday I get my local newspaper in the mail. I know, how quaint, but there is something satisfying about tucking a paper under your arm and walking to a diner for lunch. As I’m reading this week’s edition of The News of Orange County, I find one of my poems on page 10!


I wrote The CEO’s Testimony before Congress on April 13th, 2015 as part of the April Poem-A-Day Challenge. The version printed in the newspaper is substantially the same but I still want everyone to run out and buy their own copy of today’s paper.
