Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Herd on the Street [by Catherine R. Stimpson]:


Very true: this year All Hallow's Eve and the Marathon packed a fierce one-two punch, with the clock-changing ritual thrown in to make sure that late-night revelers and early-to-rise worm-catchers alike had to contend with at least one bonus complication. Add two Yankee victories and stir. Garnish with lime wedge. New York, New York! You can make it anywhere, but if you make it here, Sinatra will toast you: May you live to be a hundred, and may the last voice you hear be mine. Here's to you, Kate, with thanks for the you-were-there report -- and your powerful last line.

i love how you are able to combine two seemingly unrelated events :)

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.
