Commentator and former poet, Jennifer Pemberton, wants to remind listeners that April is National Poetry Month and you don't have to be a poet -- or even look like one -- to celebrate poetry in America.
These are the poems that nearly bring her out of retirement every time she reads them:
Every family has an official designated shopper. Steve Eaton's family has a strict list of approved foods and forbidden food. As a columnist, it's his responsibility to talk about important issues of the day like eating chocolate chip cookies before 7:00 a.m. Also about the relationship between pink slime and the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Jennifer Pemberton spends this time of year watching the forecast closely, not worried about snow or sun or even the particulate count in wheezy Cache Valley. She's on Blossom Watch, checking the National Parks Service webcam on the National Mall in Washington to see if the cherry blossoms on their way, which will mean it's time for hanami.
Mitt's been in such a good mood lately...Steve doesn't want to be around when he finds out he doesn't get to be president. Still, he feels a little bit sorry for him and is willing to bet you $10,000 that you wouldn't want to be him.
