Happy Birthday, Edgar Allen Poe!

As my father might say, Poe would've been 200 years old today if he hadn't died. I didn't realize that this was coming up, but there seem to be tons of activities in celebration (although some of them have already gone past). Here's a Poe bicentennial blog, a list of activities in Baltimore, another Baltimore site, a site for activities in Virginia, the Edgar Allen Poe National Historic Site in Philadelphia from the National Park Service, and a fairly extensive list that probably includes all of those places I've named and more. At the very least, go buy his stamp, which was just released on Friday.

Happy Birthday, Edgar! Here's to another 200 years just like the first.
