It takes a spot of courage to stand up tall and a bit of derring-do to rise when you fall

Poetic Injustice

On the heels of the rather funny previous news item comes the sad report of a young man in New York---an aspiring poet---who jumped into the Hudson River to save his book bag filled with his writings. He and the bag succumbed to the current........Perhaps a lesson in having two copies of everything? Or three or four. I'm sure if he could've written the ending to his life story, it wouldn't have been this, no matter how romantically tragic a young poet can be.
