See the resemblance? (left, Edgar Allan Poe, author; right, Edgar Poe, troublemaker)
Both Richmond, Virginia, and Baltimore, Maryland, are celebrating Poe's bicentennial birthday all year. I don't know if I will make it to one of these cities for the events but it will be a great time to dig out The Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe and reread some of America's best short stories and poems. Cheers to you Mr. Poe on your 200th birthday!
