Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The Story is in the Fight:


In 1979 John Ashbery declared Empress Chili to be the best Cincinnati chili; in the intervening years that company has drastically declined in market share, now numbering only four outlets in the entire metropolitan area. I don't know if John's endorsement had anything to do with that. Most recently (last May), John Koethe declared that the best chili in Cincinnati was served at Camp Washington Chili. Since John A. and John K. are good friends, I would be very surprised if they got into a fight over this. Maybe some heckling from the audience, should one of them attend a reading given by the other, but that's about it.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
