On this, the 200th anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday, I pondered this question. My guess would be “yes”, as it certainly would have been easier for him than bouncing about as he did over his short life. With a single place to share his thoughts, just think how many retweets we’d be enjoying!

Oh, and a disappointing word of note: The “Poe Toaster”, who’s been visiting the Poe grave since 1949 has not shown up this year to pay their respects.  I’ll do my part and toast Mr. Poe with some fine Ouzo, as his body of work lives on today and I’m so much richer for having some in my own library.
