Our friends at Tippi Toes DC called us out for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and today we followed through! Sorry for the fuzzy video quality, but we sure weren't doing a second take! We challenge our friends at the Hill Rag, Barracks Row, and our lovely third floor tenants!

For a couple of years in the early 2000s, Edward Hirsch wrote a popular column for Book World called “Poet’s Choice.” Every week, with great intelligence and wit, he taught us how to appreciate poems from around the world.

Now Hirsch opens a window on what was going on in his own life during that time. He’s just published a work of poetry called “Gabriel” (Knopf, $26.95) about the tumultuous experience of his adopted son, his “reckless boy,” who died at the age of 22 in 2011.

Margaret Talbot and I will kick off our second series of Pre-Code films at Washington, D.C.’s Hill Center tomorrow night with “The Ladies They Talk About.” As Margaret says, it’s Depression-era “Orange is the New Black,” much of it set in a women’s prison with a colorful group of inmates. It is based on a play written by an actress who herself served time in prison.
