Dear Dispatches,
Lemme say that I’ve followed Dispatches w/ interest, not to say glee (no Facebook in Iran… instead the faces of Khomeini & Khameini on large posters everywhere… as on the virulent anti-American placards at various strategic sites, e.g.. Cyrus’s tomb, at the “center of Iran).
I particularly liked the most recent review of the American Academy of Poets gala. Very funny. Also, I think it’s great (as far as I can tell) the way the site periodically flushes old things out to stay on top of (or, behind) what’s fresh… Keeps it light, fast, flexible… Hermetico-Mercurial.
