Poetry Comment.

Apologies for editor’s lapses in concentration:

I hang my head in shame at the two major errors which I allowed to get passed my editorial eye:

Apologies to Michael Bartholomew Biggs for referring to his excellent on-line poetry magazine as the
‘Poetry Grip’ when I know it is the ‘London Grip’. Sincere apologies, Michael, especially after you so
generously allowed me to reprint the article. Do please become acquainted with the ‘London Grip’,
it is well worth it and they don’t make stupid mistakes.

Apologies also to Jim C. Wilson. In his poem, ‘Stolpersteine’, the person remembered is ‘Herbert
Josef Rotschild’ and not Rothschild as I printed it. This poem is poem of the week for 29th
January 2017. Please do read the correct version and see why it is essential to have the correct
spelling. Sincere apologies to Jim.
