The annoucemnet of Romney's choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate is yesterday's news. A small headline only one column wide, no mention of Ryan's name in the headline, no picture. At least it was on page one--but less than 3 inches. A story abut campaign finances got more inches. The Ryan story continued on page 4, but claimed only about a half page. And that was it.
It made it hard for me to find material for my poem. I had to write about Ryan. It is a significant event for the 2012 election, and my mission is to write a poem for all significant events.
