Southern Poets and Poems, Part XVII

 

A series by Clyde Wilson

Thomas Holley Chivers (1809—1858) of Georgia was a physician and poet and a friend of Edgar Allan Poe, who encouraged him. He published over 10 volumes of poetry and plays but was largely forgotten until rediscovered by 20th century critics. Chivers believed that  good poetry was a result of “divine inspiration.”

*War (or) Maybe We Could Go Bowling Instead

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin conceded Friday that there is still the possibility that U.S. troops could find themselves face to face with Russian troops — although he stressed that there was still time to work within the diplomatic space as well.

Austin gave a briefing on the escalating tensions — not just between Russia and Ukraine, but between Russia and the United States as well — alongside Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley, and he said that the primary goal was to continue to pursue diplomacy.**

Elon Musk Unloads on Biden Over Remarks About American Manufacturing: ‘Treating The American Public Like Fools’

Elon Musk Unloads on Biden Over Remarks About American Manufacturing: ‘Treating The American Public Like Fools’

The next day, Musk shared an analysis from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School — Musk’s alma mater — that explained that the national debt would increase by over 24% if the bill’s provisions are made permanent.

“There is a lot of accounting trickery in this bill that isn’t being disclosed to the public,” Musk said about the Build Back Better Act. “Nothing is more permanent than a ‘temporary’ government program.”

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk slammed Democrat President Joe Biden on Thursday over remarks that Biden made about using American automakers to produce more electric vehicles.

“I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America,” Biden wrote in a tweet that featured a video of him talking with General Motors CEO Mary Barra. “Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before.”
