In Case You Hadn’t Heard

the Obamas held a poetry-arts jam at the White House recently.

M

it was lively but mellow.  darth vader read othello.  the obama’s know their poetry so there was actually a statement released about the nature of the evening’s activities,

As White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers made clear in an email to Lynn Sweet, tonight’s event is not a poetry “slam” – which is different than a poetry “jam.”

“Slam is a competition,” she noted. “There will be no competition.”

    ummmmm, yes? i mean that’s the point of our post: the obama’s like poetry. i don’t know if you have read the rest the site but that’s mainly what we’re interested in…people who like poetry!
