Poetry

Every once in awhile, students will show their appreciation by giving me a present.  I discourage this; a thank you is more than sufficient, and even this I don't expect.  

But as I wrote, every once in awhile someone will give me a souvenir bat (St. Louis Cardinals even though I grew up a Cubs fan), some small forks from Cambodia, a decorative vase, a Galilean thermometer, and even a fossil fish.  You can see these displayed in my office.  

Last week, I received my first poem.  The author is Selene Ramirez.

    I am assuming that your failure to acknowledge my recent comment under your blog post of 25 August (I've also emailed you) is deliberate?

    You flagged this (now deleted) YEC blog post on Facebook recently:
    http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache%3AkZSsC6zQgDoJ%3Awww.piltdownsuperman.com%2F2012%2F09%2Fstalkers-and-miscellaneous.html+stormbringer+stalkers+miscellaneous&cd=6&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=safari
    You apparently wrote: "A post from Saturday, Sept. 29 from the Stormbringer (ooo, is that thunder I hear?) Mysteriously, he deleted the post quickly."
    There was a short ensuing discussion. (I don't post on Facebook myself.)

    I think Mr Sorensen deleted his post because I flagged it here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2JHL2JBSWOD70/ref=cm_cd_pg_oldest?ie=UTF8&asin=0890516812&cdForum=Fx3T9H3RUVPKH0E&cdPage=1&cdSort=newest&cdThread=Tx2RXL1B0HY8GHF&store=books#wasThisHelpful

    Mr Sorensen was talking about me, not you! He DID post about both of us on 9 September: http://www.piltdownsuperman.com/2012/09/bill-nye-fallout-and-debate-challenge_9.html

    I HAVE ALREADY COMMENTED ABOVE ABOUT COWBOY BOB, AND I HAVE COPIED YOU IN ON NUMEROUS EMAILS. YOU HAVE NOT RESPONDED. DOES THIS MEAN THAT YOU DON'T READ YOUR EMAILS NOR COMMENTS MADE UNDER YOUR BLOG POSTS?

    I saw your post when it was flagged on Facebook by 'Questioning the Question Evolution Project'. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Question-the-Question-Evolution-Project/514985451851831

    I'm flagging this by email in the hope that you will read it.
