A tragic story about a fight over poetry, reported in an amazing way


Blog Posted:1/29/2014 2:39:00 PM
 

Ok so someone in Russia was murdered because he fought with a friend that poetry was not “Real Literature”.  That is a very sad reason to resort to violence and I do not condone it. BUT the way the reporter wrote the article really made me chuckle.
