1. My poem "Duality" is online at The Siren.

2. Tired of Veterinarian-Ballerina-Schoolteacher Barbie? Why not Classicist Barbie? Accessories include a bust of Homer and a tiny Oxford Classical Dictionary.

3. Mel Gibson IS Hamlet. Or, well, maybe not. The Viking-ish setting also gives me pause--I'm well aware of the fallacy of depicting the past as "primitive" and therefore "noble," but it seems to me that the world of the play is rather too subtle, too courtly, too corruptly sophisticated for this age. (Would a true Beowulf-era Hamlet simply have denounced Claudius as a murderer and delivered a challenge to him?)
