"News print poetry", a form of "found poetry" or "blackout poetry." I took one story from the Orlando Sentinel newspaper each day and transformed it into a poem by creatively selecting words from the story. The words are kept in their original order and no words were added. The 2012 project is completed, but I add new poems from time to time.
I commented on my progress, and about writing in general, on a companion blog: http://newsprintpoetry.blogspot.com.
The “Buffet rule” is based on a
statement made by billionaire investor, Warren Buffet, who said that he pays a
lower percentage of his income in taxes than his secretary.The “Buffet rule,” if enacted into law, would
ensure that millionaires and billionaires pay at least a 30% tax rate.Mitt Romney, the wealthiest man to ever run
for president, paid a 14% rate in 2010.
