It’s strange. Valerie Vogrin pointed out to me that these are such small poems written in response to such large paintings and murals. But I think the people in Rivera’s painting are of few words.

A Southern Illinois University Edwardsville graduate student has created a website application to help other dyslexic students like himself. Jason Braun, 35, of Edwardsville recently launched an online “homophone” checker.
A homophone refers to words that sound the same, but are spelled differently, and Braun’s web application, http://www.homophonecheck.com, allows writers to proofread for errors that word processing software can’t find.
For example, spell checking a document won’t find an error if you use ‘there’ instead of ‘their’ or ‘they’re’ or ‘know’ instead of ‘no.’
