Re: jet plane view (Marc) and C.J. Laity
- Dear Marc...C.J. Laity puts an enormous amount of time and effort
into promoting poetry in Chicago. His ChicagoPoetry.com is updated
daily and contains a lot of great information to help Chicago poets
know what is going on in a very active community. I wish every city
had someone with his drive and dedication. He is irreplaceable.
I am glad he has shared his views on your poetry, too. It is always
a good thing to receive a variety of observations.
P.S. I don't require my friends and aquaintences to concur with my
political opinions. It would be a dull world, indeed, if they did.
Besides, I tend to change my mind frequently. New facts and new
situations deserve reconsideration of long-held views.
