Apparently, some people really want to see a guy who runs around unflinchingly calling himself a poet continue to accumulate success stories. I mean, look what Manny Jalonschi, Managing Editor of The BQ Brew, wrote on his Facebook wall, commenting on my interview with Democracy at Work.
Always great to see a grassroots people’s champ like Charles Bivona get some love. That dude stuck it out for his “next level of art” (he even took some serious professional flack for daring to believe that poetry would go online! ::gasp::), he built a unique, productive form of online intellectual media, and somehow you’ll see that he still finds time to personally work with or inspire dozens of writers. Lotsa folks out in the netroots talk about solidarity, but bet your bottom dollar Prof. Bivona is out there day in and day out connecting good people to other good people and great intellectual resources.
Way to go Democracy at Work, we need to start recognizing more of our day-to-day, struggle-to-struggle heroes. One Love!
Flattered. Validated. Humbled. Thank you so much, sir.
