reactionary tactics

You know sometimes I get swept up in reactionary rhetoric.
Sometimes I don't do my research and assume way too much.

This is the case with my entry on Foetry on Monday.

First, the heresay of unfair judging. As many bloggers have pointed out we have to be careful not to let resentment and rumor get the best of us.

So, I need to apologize for misrepresenting Verse press. Verse press has a number of poets without MFA's and only three of their poets went to Iowa. I assumed way too much. I jumped on the bandwagon of anti-Iowa bashing without first doing my research.

My impression of Fence books may also be incorrect.

Thanks to Brian Henry for setting the record straight.
