Thank you for joining us for todayâ€™s show, Buddha and Benches; and This Just In: The Newsâ€”gossip was the original news, which became poetry, the way we â€œknewâ€ the â€œnewsâ€â€”gathered to hear it as we do right now, and weâ€™re going to talk about news â€“news we need and heed, and overlook, news as in, thatâ€™s news to me, as in, we didnâ€™t know, and news thatâ€™s telling us what we knew–from the Internetâ€”computers and phones and Blackberriesâ€”how the news of poetry reaches us in our modern days and ways:
On TVâ€”weâ€™ll talk about Friday Night Lightsâ€™s poetry . . . Â in the newspaperâ€”the story of a guy who uses poetry to save his life . . . booksâ€”Breakfast with Buddha . . . benches . . . on your walk–
Candy wrappersâ€”think chocolate . . . Supermarkets . . . Safewayâ€™s tribute . . . the internet . . . news from you, what you send in, listener pilot philosopher Mr. Tripi today. And weâ€™ll hear news music and update you on the news of trees in Central Park, a continuing story on the Poetry Slow Down.
