Here's the challenge...what headline would you like to read - it cannot include YOU or anyone here at PiP..make it REAL

for example:

quote:

RON CARNELL WINS NOBEL PRIZE
Famous poet, novelist, webmaster unanimous winner




Ok..your turn....

this just in

WORLD PEACE HAS FINALLY HAPPENED
from this day forth NO MORE WARS


I would rather have one breath of his hair,
one kiss of his mouth,
one touch of his hand
than an eternity without it.

Arizona brushfires contained -- Someone named Sharon, who is NOT a member of PIP yet strangely goes by Poet deVine in e-mail, but is NOT a member of PIP because that would break the rules, remains calm

And y' wouldn't say "This just in" in a newspaper headline. Y'd just write i'.

Cute thread. Ah'll be back from tahm t' tahm.
