Q

The marvel of living in a land with so many time zones is that you can find out you've been talked about on the radio before the show's been broadcast. Brenda tells me there's some mention of this GG brouhaha on CBC's Q this morning. I'm curious to hear it.

And I'm curious to hear your reaction!

Well, you'll have to wait till tomorrow morning when Jian reads the letter I sent in as a response.

PS I'm now dealing with a little dissonance over that programme!

You'll be disappointed, Zac - Jian makes us out to be bickering and petty, not justly offended by bad judging and lack of accountability on the part of judges and CC. I wrote an email to the program complaining about his lack of sensitivity to ALL artists at a time when we're basically under attack by our own government. I also suggested they get an expert on the program, say a poet or critic, to talk intelligently about poetry as Jian is incapable. Glad you're making a fuss,

Thanks, Gillian. I thought it was kind of funny. Anyway, Jian, I'm told, will be reading my response on air tomorrow morning (i.e. Wednesday). Turns out I know one of the show's producers. Hope that isn't too much of a conflict of interest...

Breathe easy, Zach: MR @ CC just called to let me know there *may* be a conflict of interest if you made a direct intellectual contribution to the producer's work. The fact that you co-produced a segment of a recent show probably won't be a problem. So long as all those damn bloggers keep quiet...
