It's Spring Time and the Blender Digest is sporting its Easter pastels- oh
wait, this is how the site always looks. Never mind.
Still, it's good to see you here, and I hope you'll enjoy this month's
selection of new prose and poetry, as well as the usual editor "Rambles
Regarding Romance" and a review of Garrison Keillor's Mr. Blue column in
So have a happy Easter, Passover, Pagan Spring Ritual, or my personal favorite,
return of Daylight Savings Time!
Read, Love, Enjoy.
