Happy 200th Birthday, Edgar Allan Poe -- January 19, 2009

Today is Edgar Allan Poe's 200th birthday. I find it hard to imagine another American who has had so great an effect on world literature -- even Zane Grey.
"I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat."
The Chronicle has been celebrating its 144th birthday. Today the Sporting Green was green. Hallelujah.
