Literati Awards

Nominated for Best Use of poetic metaphor: Mediabistro's New York Fishbowl, for vamping a link to a piece on avian flu with a line from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, to wit: And lo! the bird is on the wing. Full verse:

Come fill the Cup, and in the fire of Spring
The Winter-garment of Repentance fling:
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly—and Lo! the Bird is on the Wing.
Or as Jimmy Buffet paraphrased this immortal verse: "Why don't we get drunk and screw?"
