Deciding the Next Decider is an ongoing campaign narrative in verse interrupted regularly by other poems, such as a country tune about John Edwards called “Yes, I Know He’s a Mill Worker’s Son, But There’s Hollywood in That Hair,” and a Sarah Palin song about her foreign policy credentials: “On a Clear Day, I See Vladivostok.” It covers the slow-motion implosion of Hillary Clinton’s drive to the White House (“Some pundits wrote that Hil’s campaign might fare / A little better if Bill wasn’t there”), and the differing responses of Barack Obama and John McCain to the financial crisis (“Though coolness has its limitations, it’ll / Prevent comparisons with Chicken Little”). And it carries through to the vote that made Barack Obama the forty-fourth president of the United States.

Knitting Classes with Thea Gray
Warm scarves are a must for our foggy clime, but sometimes the long ones just get in the way. Consider this attractive ruff from One-Skein Wonders as an alternative, for you or a loved one. Knit in a worsted weight yarn, it works up quickly but looks rather fancy. Plus, you'll learn an excellent technique - short rows - that can be used for hats, sweaters, and all manner of other projects, as well as a simple buttonhole technique. Makes a great, fast gift. This class was a favorite in 2007.
Prerequisites: Mastery of casting on, the
knit stitch, and binding off.
