The dogsled team pictured in the header of the website is one of two belonging to the British Antarctic Survey that swept by Base O’Higgins in January, 1962, on an expedition down the North Antarctic Peninsula. I happened to spot them one morning when I woke up. I grabbed my camera, climbed the Continental Glacier, and spent a few minutes chatting with them before they drove south. There’s a passage in Frozen in Time drawn from this encounter. That’s not me waving from the dogsled (unfortunately ... I would have loved to have tried that).
 

Poetry by Theodore Jerome Cohen


Dysfunctional Nation A sonnet about government corruption, the fall of the media into chaos, the reverence of the men and women that serve in our Armed Forces, and the hope that we may yet survive.
