Too cool! Thanks, Rigoberto. I'll trust you to choose the readers -- there's so much great new poetry coming out there now it would hard for me to choose (DIANA DELGADO!) and so many fine young Xicanerati, like the one you got lounging around typing in his chones. lol (hope you don't need to save this email)

Thanks, again, to you and the advisory circle.

See you soon, I hope.
