Coming Soon? Eventually? To a book store near you

If you're ever in a book store, and see a book of poetry by an Arlington
taxi driver named Tim, I believe we met him this morning. On our 8
minute drive to the airport, he asked us if we wanted to hear some

I almost wished we had a longer ride to learn more about this guy. And
more importantly, for me to explain that using Blogger he could be a
published author *today*, with an audiance of millions. Heck, he could
even publish the poetry over SMS - though I'd hoped he wouldn't do it
while driving.
