This is good, and I'm looking forward to using it. One question though: was I completely misinformed when I heard that poetry slams emerged from the Nuyorican Cafe here in my hometown of NY City? Do you know anything about this? I'm probably just being NY-centric like always.

I have to figure out where to fit this in because it is not about a single author like most of the article pages. I'm wondering if I should consider slams as a new genre ... hmmm. I may need a little more time to think about this, but thanks in advance.
