Poem: How do you like them apples?

It's the weekend, so not much on the economic front to report. The government might take our tax dollars to give to GM and Ford, but that potential giveaway comes next week. For now, some poetry:

Federico Lorca, who wrote the poem above ("Gacela of the Dark Death"), had a fascinating, but sad life:

Ok so I read this poem. Which lead me to want to read the Wikipedia because I wanted to know more about this crazy poet.

Which lead me to whom he kind of fell in love with or had a thing for or wanted to um "get with".
Salvador Dalí which lead me to his wife Gala Dalí. Which lead me to a lot of other interesting Wikipedia reads. One being the Lindbergh kidnapping story.
- That was because Dalí & Gala had dressed up as that at a Halloween party.
Yeah I was stuck reading stuff on Wikipedia for like 2 hours.... well because I kept starting to read other stuff.
So I guess you enriched my life a little because of this one poem.
Crazy huh?
