Two Timin’ Souper

It turns out our fellow PEA Souper Troy Jollimore has been doing a little non-philosophical dabbling on the side: he just won the National Book Critics Circle poetry prize for his first collection of poems, Tom Thomson in Purgatory.  Read all about it here.  Congratulations, Troy!  Or perhaps I should express my congratulations in the form of the following haiku:

  1. Hey, someone just told me that Michael Cholbi also achieved a small measure of fame this evening… Is that right, Michael? But that it didn’t go as well as you hoped…

  2. Is that Cholbi teaser for a story just gonna sit there or is someone gonna deliver the punch line?
    And Troy: that is amazing to be both a good philosopher and to be able to write movingly about issues that deeply touch the human condition.

  3. I’d thought Sobel was going to say that it was amazing both to be able to write movingly about issues that deeply touch the human condition and to be a good poet.
    And yes, what is this Cholbi story? I’m getting the vapors all a-tingly in anticipation.

  4. Now that is cool! Mike (or anyone speaking on behalf of Mike), have you been on yet, or are you on tonight (Friday)??

  5. Two haiku for Michael:
    WHY PHILOSOPHERS MAKE SUCH GOOD JEOPARDY CONTESTANTS
    Philosophy, it
    is said, takes answers and turns
    them into questions.
    A BRIEF HISTORY OF WESTERN PHILOSOPHY, FROM THE TRIAL OF SOCRATES TO THE PRESENT DAY
    Philosophy’s dawn:
    a wise man in jeopardy.
    Now it’s Cholbi’s turn.
