Schmidly to hire unpaid advisers by Tricia Remark and Pat Lohmann Daily Lobo

President Schmidly announced today the creation of a team of advisers who aim to help the administration consolidate its budget during times of economic hardship. The “President’s Strategic Advisory Team” will be made up of unpaid students, staff and faculty. Schmidly said he’s drawing on input from the entire campus community on how to help “contain costs.” “Cost containment is one of the biggest issues in higher education in the country,” he said. “Budgets almost everywhere are in jeopardy. We’re all having to work with less and we can’t pass the cost onto our students, and yet we’re in a time when getting a college education is more important than ever in terms of strengthening the country. What we’re talking about here is containing our cost(s) to operate the institution and maximizing our ability to invest in classrooms and in faculty.” Schmidly said the Board of

Regents asked him to come up with a plan that would “reduce expenses and protect the mission of the institution,” and he said the group of advisers is a part of that. He’ll announce the list of nominations to the team sometime this week. “I don’t want the group to be so big that it can’t function efficiently, so I’ve got to look at trying to keep the number down to the 15 to 20 range,” Schmidly said. “There is a lot of talent on this campus. That’s the encouraging thing to me.” Faculty Senate President Doug Fields said Schmidly proposed the idea of an advisory board at a meeting of the Faculty Senate Operations Committee on Friday. He said Schmidly’s proposed team consisted of 11 administrators, two deans, a non-administrative faculty member and another two slots for faculty. Fields said he and Richard Wood, faculty senate president-elect, offered a counter-proposal that reduced the number of administrators in the team and dictated that the team report to both Fields

Projected allocations for research grants by Andrew Beale Daily Lobo

UNM will receive more than $37 million in federal stimulus funding for research initiatives. The money, which came from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, is split between main campus and the Health Sciences Center. The Health Sciences Center will receive more than $21 million and the main campus will receive more than $16 million. University spokeswoman Karen Wentworth said the grants were awarded in a competitive setting. “Our researchers turn in proposals to the federal funding agencies, and those federal funding agencies determine which proposals will get grant money,” she said. Of the money going to the Health Sciences Center, more than $19 million was awarded to the School of Medicine, with roughly $1.6 million going to the College of Pharmacy, and about $32,000 for the School of Nursing. The largest single grant awarded to main campus for more than $6 million is earmarked for improvements to UNM’s Long Term Ecological Research Networks. Wentworth said the money for LTER Network will go to improve its Sevilleta station. “(Sevilleta) is a big biological station we have that’s north of Socorro,” she said. “We do all kinds of long-term ecological research there. What this particular grant will do is help build

up the remote sensing infrastructure at the station so the scientists don’t have to drive down there every time they want to check something.” The second-largest individual grant to main campus was for more than $700,000 for the “Web-based Substance Abuse STD/HIV Prevention,” for which there was no readily available information. The largest grant the Health Sciences Center received was $2.4 million for “HPV (Human Papillomavirus) Outcomes: Prevention, Epidemiology and Surveillance.” Wentworth said one of the most interesting grants she knew of was for “Space and Tropospheric Weather” at main campus. She said this grant is to program computers to study the weather from space. The funding will go to the Configurable Space Microsystems Innovations and Application Center. “What they’re particularly working on now is programming computer chips so that they can be sent into space via small space cubes,” she said. “We teach students at COSMIAC how to program those chips and reprogram those chips to put it into the little space cubes.” Health Sciences Center received four more grants worth $1 million or more, which included “Evaluation of a CCR5 Vaccine for HIV infection in a SIV/Macaque model,” “Building Core Programs in Cardiovascular & Metabolic Disease,” “University of New Mexico Cancer Center Support” and “Using Transport to Map the Brain.”

MyUNM portal to go down for upgrades MyUNM portal unavailable over the weekend by Kallie Red-Horse Daily Lobo

If you find yourself unable to log into MyUNM this weekend, don’t panic. The MyUNM portal is undergoing an internal update in preparation for a later Banner upgrade, said Vanessa Baca, IT communication specialist. “We are getting a new version of MyUNM in order for it to work in compliance with the new upgraded version of Banner 8,” she said. “The interface that we have now doesn’t have the correct components so that’s why we are doing it now, so that it will work with the Banner upgrade.” The beneficial improvements to MyUNM may not be immediately obvious to users, Baca said. “There won’t be any changes in what they see. It’s more of an

internal system upgrade,” she said. “It allows more consistency in the email services and less functional issues happening.” The upgrades are mandated by the SunGard provider said Nancy Middlebrook, the project’s supervisor. LoboWeb and UNM e-mail will still be available during the upgrade, Baca said. “The number of actual functions that they won’t have access to will be very limited,” she said. Linda Johansen, applications programming manager, said people tend to link the portal with LoboWeb but they are two distinctly separate programs. “It’s kind of confusing since you use the portal to get to LoboWeb, so it’s easy to forget that they are two different things,” she said. “The portal upgrade will only affect LoboWeb during that Friday to Sunday time frame. The portal elements like tabs and groups will be in read-only mode Wednesday through Friday, but all

MyUNM will be down Friday at 7 p.m. until Sunday at noon

the links will work like regular and the portal will look and act the same as always, so truthfully most people won’t even notice the difference.” This weekend was chosen for MyUNM portal outage to ensure its completion before Spring Break, when the Banner system will also undergo changes, Middlebrook said. “We realize its not the most convenient time for people but with these things there is no good time to take the system down,” she said. “A lot of times we try to do it over winter break but we couldn’t have done it by winter break this time around. We tried to pick the next best time with minimized impact on students and staff realizing that any time is going to impact people.”

Senate heats up over Richardson bill LEGISLATIVE SESSION

by Barry Massey Associated Press

SANTA FE — Simmering disagreements between lawmakers and the administration of Gov. Bill Richardson boiled over Monday, as the Senate sought to force state agencies to provide the Legislature with confidential information about contracts and programs. The Senate voted 34-8 to override Richardson’s veto last year of legislation passed after a state agency denied information about Medicaid to the Legislative Finance Committee. The administration contended the material was confidential, and it could not be shared with lawmakers. To enact a bill over the governor’s objections, the House also would have to vote by a two-thirds majority to override the veto. It remained uncertain if the House would attempt an override vote this session. Rep. Luciano “Lucky” Varela, a Santa Fe Democrat and Finance Committee chairman, said he would support an override. “I think it will go,” he said.

Gilbert Gallegos, a spokesman for Richardson, said the governor was focused on the budget and “not on procedural gimmicks or attempts to derail the serious business of the Legislature.” He said the bill has serious constitutional problems. Veto overrides are rare. During Republican Gov. Gary Johnson’s eight years in office, the Democratic-led Legislature succeeded in overriding only two of more than 700 vetoes. Richardson has objected to several bills passed by the Legislature in recent years because he maintains they intrude on executive branch powers. Senators who backed the override said it was critical for lawmakers to get all the information they needed to assess whether programs and contracts are working properly. The LFC, a budget oversight committee, had wanted a wide range of information about Medicaid, including costs by managed care companies that administer health care services through contracts with the state. Medicaid provides health care to the poor and uninsured children. “I think we should stand up and demand where the money is going,” said Senate President Tim

Jennings, D-Roswell. Sen. Phil Griego, D-San Jose, opposed the veto and said it was done to embarrass the governor before his terms ends this year. The vetoed legislation would make clear that state agencies must provide the LFC with confidential material, and the committee would not publicly disclose the information. Sen. Tim Keller, an Albuquerque Democrat who pushed for the override vote, said the ability to obtain confidential information about contracts will be important as lawmakers look at decisionmaking about state investments. A federal grand jury is investigating state investments and has requested documents from state agencies about millions of dollars in fees paid to third-party marketing agents. The bill subject to the override vote was SB531 from the 2009 legislative session.

Letter Fire-and-brimstone preacher was just speaking the truth Editor, In response to David Luna’s letter in the Lobo on Monday, “UNM should not allow hatemongering on campus:” First off, David, in your letter you said we all understand free speech and freedom to worship, but this doesn’t give us a license to say whatever we want whenever we want. Excuse me, but, yes it does. You also said Shawn the Baptist continued to tell the UNM community, and not just homosexuals this time, that God abhorred them because they were sinners and that they were doomed to spend eternity in hell because of the way they lived their lives. Excuse me again, but that’s exactly what God said. Read your Bible. I’m sure Shawn is not a hater of people. I’m sure he loves people. That’s why he does what he does. I’m sure he hates the sin and not the sinner. Steve Brown Daily Lobo reader

Column

Complex passwords a necessary annoyance by Mike Carr

Daily Lobo guest columnist “I hate passwords!” “I hate changing my passwords!” “Yahoo doesn’t make me change my passwords! Why do I have to change my UNM password?” I despise having to use and change passwords, too. Unfortunately, not all computer systems are equipped with retinal scanners, voice recognition and fingerprint readers nor can everyone afford these identity authentication gadgets. So, like you, I have several different user IDs (aka login IDs) and passwords. Some passwords I change periodically; others I do not. It’d be nice if computer systems could sense who you are and be able to tell if “you” are really “you,” but unfortunately most systems aren’t that sophisticated, yet. Alas, we may be stuck with passwords for a while. “My bank doesn’t make me change my password.” While financial institutions like Wells Fargo and Bank of America may not make you change your online banking password, in the past year or so, many large banks have actually toughened up their online authentication processes. For example, Bank of America now requires customers to answer a security question in addition to supplying a password and confirming a picture. “But my UNM online stuff isn’t as important as my money. I’m an adult. Let me decide when to change my password.” For most students, that’s probably what

UNM IT is going to recommend. However, some students do have access to more than just their own UNM accounts and courseware. These students may very well have to change their UNM password more frequently. Such an approach is referred to as “risk-based” and “role-based” security. It’s an environment in which password complexity and passwordchange requirements are determined by who you are, what you have access to and what the impact and risk is to getting your NetID and password hacked. “In the meantime, why do I have to pick different passwords than ones I’ve used before, and why do the passwords themselves have to be all gobbledy-gook with pounds signs and stuff like that?” Studies have shown that more than 40 percent of all individually chosen passwords are readily guessed by someone who knows the account’s owner. When left to their own devices, most people will use the same password for many different applications. This is very risky: A hacker or “friend” may be able to get into many of your accounts after only figuring out your password once. Believe it or not, the most popular passwords used on Web sites like Facebook, Hotmail and Yahoo include “123456,” “iloveyou,” “password” and “qwerty” (which are the first 6 letters on the top left row of many keyboards). And, while no password is un-crackable, the general rule of thumb is “the longer, the better.” There are several other cute phrases that are often used to help remind us of how to treat

passwords: “Passwords are like toothbrushes: Don’t share yours with others.” “Passwords are like socks: you should change them often.” But nothing beats a very long and very complex password. Unfortunately, many computer systems (including some at UNM) do not permit very long and very complex passwords. In those cases, make your password as long and as complex as you can. To see how strong your passwords are, test their strength on a Microsoft Web site, such as www.microsoft.com/protect/fraud/ passwords/checker.aspx. Things could be worse. Some security experts recommend that passwords should be randomly generated and then given to people to use. But don’t worry. UNM won’t be moving to randomly-generated passwords, and things really will get better here at UNM. As everyone becomes more aware of the risks of using the same, simple passwords and decides to create and use longer and more complex pass-phrases or one-time passwords, stringent password requirements may no longer be needed. P.S. It’s probably not good for you to use your NetID or UNM e-mail address for Yahoo, MySpace or Facebook. More on that in a later column. If you have questions about computer security or have ideas for future topics, feel free to contact me at mcarr@ unm.edu. Mike Carr is the UNM Director of IT Security & Quality Assurance.

Letter Lobo readers need to chill out and ease up on the paranoia Editor, I want to comment on two of the letters in the Feb. 4 opinion section — “9/11 an inside job” and “Daily Lobo a waste of paper” — two letters that, if truly representative of UNM’s student population, would make me ashamed to be a student here. The latter, “Daily Lobo a waste of paper” was just mean-spirited and sweepingly dismissive, because an error or two had slipped into print the entire paper was worthless. I would hate for the school administration to think this opinion was shared by all the students here, as then they might take money from the Lobo and put it into, say, posters urging us all to “read.” (Have you seen those? Read, college students! Hilarious. I mean, sad.)

The letter failed to take into account that, as you no doubt know, the Lobo has just lost one of its best editors-in-chief in recent history, Rachel Hill, and is currently in a period of transition, during which some leeway ought to be given. (Full disclosure: I have both delivered and written for the Lobo in the past, and I have a fondness for it.) As for the 9/11 truth idiocy: Come on people, stop it already! You’re making the left look conspiracy-minded and unintelligent. Hell, you’re actually making the left conspiracyminded and unintelligent, and as a part of that left, I don’t appreciate it. These insane ideas are no more well-founded than the right’s “birther” conspiracies. It’s just that they appeal more to a left-leaning/Bush-loathing state of mind. It’s tempting to indulge in them because there’s an ample case for thinking Bush and Cheney are capable of any sort of atrocity, as villainous as they were. But as Matt Taibbi pointed out in The Great Derangement,

not everything in the world can be accurately interpreted through the lenses of our beliefs. Just because someone might be Christian, for instance, it doesn’t mean that 9/11 and Katrina had Christian explanations; it doesn’t mean they were divine punishment for our socalled sins; and just because someone might hate Bush, it doesn’t mean that Bush planted bombs in the World Trade Center and caused 9/11. The fact that so many real crimes were committed surrounding 9/11 torture, wiretapping without warrants, war crimes and so on makes the emphasis on a bunch of madeup conspiracies instead of on the legitimate crimes that are much more outrageous. I recommend Popular Mechanics’ excellent special report, “Debunking the 9/11 Myths,” for further information on the subject. Thank you. Mike Smith UNM student

news in brief FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Arizona prosecutors are asking a judge to issue a gag order in their manslaughter case against motivational speaker James Arthur Ray. Ray’s lawyers wasted no time going on the offensive after his arrest last week for three deaths that happened after a sweat lodge ceremony at a retreat he led in October outside Sedona. His lawyers appeared on “Larry King Live” and granted other interviews to counter claims by prosecutors that he was responsible for three deaths at the ceremony.

Ray is facing three counts of manslaughter and is being held in a Yavapai County jail on a $5 million bond. His lawyers say he’s not guilty. If convicted, he faces up to 12 ½ years in prison on each charge, with probation being an option. BUFFALO, N.Y. — A 26-year-old Buffalo man has been accused of holding a 13-year-old runaway in his house for six months, having sex with her more than 100 times and making her baby-sit his 1-year-old son. Michael Abdallah remains jailed after being arrested Friday. He

pleaded not guilty in Buffalo City Court on Saturday to second-degree rape, unlawful imprisonment and custodial interference. Many questions remain about the case. Police spokesman Michael DeGeorge was unable to say Monday where the 13-year-old girl is now, or how her ordeal ended. She was held from last July to December. A police report says Abdallah’s apartment had no doorknobs, and the exit door could only be opened by using a key. Court officials say Abdallah did not have a lawyer Saturday. He’s due

back in court on Thursday. TORONTO — The commander of Canada’s biggest Air Force base, who once flew dignitaries around the country, has been charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of two women. Ontario Provincial Police Det. Insp. Chris Nicholas said Monday that Col. Russell Williams, 46, was arrested Sunday in Ottawa. He was also charged in the sexual assaults of two other women. Williams was appointed as the base commander of Canadian Forces Base Trenton in Trenton, Ontario

last July. Trenton is Canada’s busiest Air Force base and is providing logistical support for Canada’s missions in Haiti and Afghanistan. Williams is charged with the firstdegree murder of Jessica Lloyd, 27, of a Belleville, Ontario, resident whose body was found earlier Monday, and Marie Comeau, a 38-year-old corporal found dead in her Brighton, Ontario, home in November. Authorities said Williams came to the attention of police during a roadside canvas on Feb. 4, six days after Lloyd was deemed missing.

demonstrated abhorrence of shared governance, and it is unfortunate that President Schmidly and this administration has squandered an opportunity to work together to better the university.” Schmidly sent an e-mail to the UNM community Feb. 4 after the reappointment of Regents Jamie Koch, Gene Gallegos and Emily “Cate” Wisdom to the Board of Regents, which drew the ire of some faculty and staff members, especially with regard to Koch. The UNM faculty voted no confidence in Koch almost a year ago and discouraged legislators from reappointing him. However, Schmidly’s e-mail encouraged UNM faculty, students and staff to set their sights on

the future. “We have been chastised for low graduation rates and questioned about our allocation of resources. We have been criticized for the size of our administration, challenged about our teaching loads and called to question over our governance practices,” Schmidly said in the email. “Taken individually, these challenges are difficult, yet manageable. Taken all at once and we find the very ground upon which we are standing no longer feels secure.” In his Monday-Morning Message on Feb. 8, Schmidly referenced this email when announcing the advent of advisement team. “Last Thursday, I delivered an open message to the UNM

community about recent events, present challenges and future aspirations,” Schmidly said in the message. “Since then, my office has received some positive feedback, which I appreciate. However, the time is now to move from words to action.” GPSA President Lissa Knudsen said while Schmidly is taking a step in the right direction by allowing students, staff and faculty — as well as administrators — into this team, she’s skeptical about the team playing a substantial role in University governance. “I don’t know how this is going to affect the UNM community as a whole,” she said. “I have some concerns about the proposal that he has made so far. At this point, we don’t

know who will be on the team. If it’s just those that have been receptive to the president’s message, then there is probably going to be a problem.” As the group of advisers would be volunteering its time, Schmidly said the University will reap benefits at no cost. “A lot of places are going outside and hiring expensive consultants to do this work, and I think we’re fortunate at the University of New Mexico that we have a lot of talented people, and we’re not going to have to go outside the University and spend a lot of money to get this done,” he said. Schmidly said a community college in Phoenix spent as much as $1.4 million to hire a team of consultants.

and Schmidly. “This proposal was presented to President Schmidly today (Monday). President Schmidly rejected this proposal, and wanted to keep the task force solely as an advisory body to the president,” Fields said in an e-mail. Fields said Schmidly’s insistence that the task force report only to him is another example of administrative reluctance in allowing faculty a role in University governance. “Faculty Senate will, as always consider any and all proposals coming from the president’s office to make the University of New Mexico more efficient and focused on its core mission,” Fields said. “However, in my opinion, the process proposed by President Schmidly typifies his

Northeast panics over snowstorm by Brett Zongker Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A $20 cab ride to the airport skyrocketed to the “snow rate” of $100 in the nation’s capital, and those travelers who could get to the airport or train station still had to haggle or wait in long lines to escape the snowbound Mid-Atlantic. The most pressing matter: Get out before another foot or more of snow comes Tuesday. “I’m done with city, urban snow life,” said Chris Vaughan, a Washington resident who was able to rebook a flight to go skiing in Utah. He dodged the pricey cab fare by having a friend drop him off at the airport — in exchange for a bottle of wine. The region had nearly 3 feet of snow in some areas. One scientist said if all the snow that fell on the East Coast were melted, it would fill 12 million Olympic swimming pools or 30,000 Empire State buildings. Philadelphia and Washington each need just a little more than nine

inches to give the cities their snowiest winters since 1884, the first year records were kept. Meteorologists predicted the snow would start Tuesday afternoon and continue into Wednesday. Between 12 and 18 inches were forecast for Philadelphia, the nation’s sixth-largest city and a travel hub — which could cause a ripple effect of travel problems for the rest of the Northeast. Airlines warned travelers more flights would be canceled, and the new storm was expected to hit a wider area, affecting New York and Boston. Sharon Lewis of Bowie, Md., was desperate to spend time with family in Trinidad. She bargained for an hour and got a flight to New York’s Laguardia Airport. But it came with caveat, she would then would have to drive across town in rush hour traffic to make a connecting flight at John F. Kennedy airport within an hour. “I don’t know how that’s going to happen,” she said. “It’ll be a disaster.” On Craigslist, owners of

four-wheel drive vehicles were selling rides to residents in northern Virginia and the Maryland suburbs. One classified ad read: “Stay safe on icy streets — 4x4 Tahoe available.” Union Station was bustling with long lines as many passengers decided to try Amtrak after flights were canceled. Manuel Bernardo, 30, of Bethesda, Md., was on his way to Barcelona, Spain. He bought a ticket to New York and was hoping to make it there in time to catch his flight to Madrid. “Until this morning, I was happy as pie, because I love snow,” he said. Others prepared for yet another storm. “Getting around is a pain right now as it is, so slushy and sloppy,” said Meghan Garaghan, 28, as she stocked up on staples and sweets at a Philadelphia supermarket. “I don’t want to think about what it’s going to be like with another foot and a half of snow dumped on top of this mess.”

Aim for things that are very simple and not overpowering.” Christian said his refined and slim clothing with dark undertones came from from his time spent as a goth kid in high school. He said that once he got to college he grew up and left the over-stylized effects of gothhood, but kept the touches that did work, such as black boots or muted colors.

If someone is wearing something odd I’ll be like, ‘Yo, that’s kind of weird.’ And if I’m saying that’s weird, it’s got to be really weird.” Zack’s furcore jacket is not motivated by a desire to be trendy or to attract attention, but because he has always wanted a fur coat. He said that old ladies often stop him to complement the coat and warn him to take good care of it. While he generally throws rules to the wind, Zack said he would never wear a pink sweater vest, skinny pleather pants or a frilly shirt from the 70s.

“Man Ray, African Art and the Modernist Lens” doesn’t just summarize the innovative efforts of early twentiethcentury photographers to popularize African culture — it recreates them. Walking through the exhibition is like experiencing the movement firsthand. Upon entering the gallery, exhibit-goers are taken back to 1914 in the recreation of the exhibit. The exhibit first showed at Alfred Stieglitz’s 291 Gallery in New York City, titled “Statuary in Wood by African Savages: The Root of Modern Art.” UNM Art Museum Director Luanne McKinnon said Man Ray and his contemporaries drew inspiration from the works on display to use surrealistic photography to familiarize mainstream society with African art. “That very influential exhibition which was on view in 1914 made an impression on the young Man Ray and other Cubists,” McKinnon said. “Their work became sort of a broadbased influence that we now don’t necessarily question because American culture and African culture are blended together. It’s who we are.” Equipped with an awareness of

the movement’s beginnings, exhibit-goers make their way through the displays to see how surrealist artists introduced African culture to mainstream society. Along one wall, several Man Ray prints surround Michel Leiris’ article, “Bois Rituels des Falaises” (Ritual Wooden Objects of the Cliffs). The photographs originally ran alongside the published article, an account of African Dogon culture based on Michel Leiris’ field work in West Africa. According to the exhibit, the photographs frame objects of the Dogon people in such a way that works against the scientific intentions of the text. Looking at the display, exhibitgoers are faced with a juxtaposition that was at the heart of the artists’ efforts to expose African culture: the use of radical, unusual photography to expose something as grounded and real as an entire society. Making their way up the stairs into the exhibit’s second room, visitors can see avant-garde ideals in fashionable action. The section of the exhibition titled “Fashioning a Popular Reception” displays photographs of Nancy Cunard by Man Ray, Cecil Beaton, Walker Evans and Raoul Ubac.

Cunard was a writer, heiress, political activist and trendsetter whose frequent donning of armfuls of African bangles spearheaded a fashion craze. Visitors that sit on one of two benches tucked in a quiet corner of the exhibition can watch a short fictional film titled “Fang: An Epic Journey,” written and directed by Susan Vogel from New York University. Part of the film addresses the political climate during the time period of the art movement by depicting the struggles of one character’s exploration of African culture under the restrictive doctrine of Nazi Germany. The show succeeded as a vivid adaptation of the artists’ efforts to popularize African culture in the 1920s and ’30s.

of literature just opened me (up), and one thing just lead to another and I had bought a Smith-Corona typewriter, which I still have, for $10. I got it worked on and started hammering out what I thought were poems. They were these little narrative pieces mostly about my life in Pecos, N.M., raised by my grandfather — partially raised. DL: And what else did you do then? TA: If it weren’t for getting sober, none of this would have happened. Literally, I was on my way to die. I actually even got the hell out of New Mexico so my folks wouldn’t have to see me. I ended up in Seattle. That was one of the reasons, I believe, Ben gave me Raymond Carver’s books because, as we all know — common knowledge — Raymond enjoyed nine years of sobriety … So when I got sober I started being of service. I was delivering flowers, and one day I had to deliver flowers to an Alzheimer unit. And I walked in there, and it was a secured unit, and I had to take some flowers to some nurse or something, and there were all of these elderly people milling around. I knew a little about Alzheimer’s, and they were obviously mentally ill. I just started having conversations with these people as if I had been having them my whole life. So that was the beginning. I still work with the Alzheimer community, although in the private sector. But that experience opened up the door to a 10-year career as an activity director working in long-term care. DL: What was it about Alzheimer’s patients that compelled you to stay in the field for 10 years? TA: It just didn’t even occur to

me, you know? That job, in the way that it picked me, is no different than the way poetry picked me. DL: What do mean that poetry picked you? TA: Well, when I first, first started writing I was writing stories because my first exposure was to people like Carver, Tobias Wolff and Richard Ford. Also. I think what spoke to me more was their ability to transmit an image. The only difference I knew between poetry and fiction writing was the sentence didn’t go all the way to the end of the page. So all I did was start doing that. And so when I got my typewriter, the next thing I did, I got my first library card and I would go into the poetry section. I didn’t know who the hell was up there, so I would just randomly take books home and look at them. I didn’t understand why they weren’t just coming out and just saying what the hell was going on in the damn poem like the stories were. I didn’t really realize that there’s a whole history of understatement and suggestion in poetry. I didn’t f-ing know any of that. I was just doing it. DL: So even if poetry picked you, why did you decide to embrace it? TA: On a practical basis, you aren’t going to get any money from poetry, man. It’s not even about that. That’s why I like it — I have an ego. The less my ego is in the classroom, the less my ego is in my work; the less my ego is in relationships, personal or otherwise, the better things seem to go. If there’s no money in it, f-ing fine, that’s cool with me. I know for a fact Plato didn’t write for money or chicks or whatever, for crying out loud.

Much changed in my life when I got sober in ’97 and so up until then, before Ben came along, the only thing I had read were, you know, fliers for beer sales or cereal boxes. I really didn’t read much at all. So Ben coming into my life, and giving me this gift
