Have you been keeping up with the Tournament of Books this year, over there on the Morning News "web" site? If so, you know they have two commentators in the broadcast booth. One of them is "blog" acquaintance John Warner and the other is his friend Kevin Guilfoile. In today's commentary, Mr. Guilfoile introduces some line breaks into a Lindsay Lohan quotation, producing a form of poetry he calls "LiLo Ku." As you know, I have in the past turned some "I don't wear eyeliner" comments by the guy who plays Richard on LOST into a poem, inspired as I was by the ambitious and visionary academic who did the same for Jerry Lewis. I believe we're working our way up to an anthology.
