Okay so I'm gonna try this "shooting my load all at once" (thanks, Kari!) link thing again. Let me know how you like it. My traffic numbers will probably take a hit but this is easier for both of us. Or is it? Or do you give a shit at all? Speak.

News Of The Day: Maya Angelou Thought She Would Be Invited To More Stuff At The White House

Nah, they just call Nipsey Russell when they need shitty poetry.

From The Onion.

Maya Angelou Thought She Would Be Invited To More Stuff At The White House

WINSTON-SALEM, NC—Saying that she didn’t want to be presumptuous but had thought her celebrated literary career, numerous academic honors, and tireless political activism would put her "pretty high up" on guests lists, Maya Angelou told reporters Monday she just always assumed she would be invited to more White House stuff. 

"I’m not saying I need to be a regular, but there’s stuff going on there pretty much every week that I’d be perfect for," said Angelou, adding that she was surprised last month when she was not invited to speak at "A Celebration of American Poetry, Past and Present," which she described as an event that was "so obviously in [her] wheelhouse."

"I would have been more than happy to write a poem for, say, a Women’s History Month event featuring the first lady," Angelou said, "Then March went by and no one’s aide or secretary ever called—not once."

"C’mon, that’s bullshit."

At press time, Angelou had circled the University of Kentucky basketball team’s White House visit on her calendar and said she plans to just show up and see what happens.
