Dead Poets Society

"Being a published poet is more dangerous than being a deep-sea diver," said James W. Pennebaker, a professor of psychology at the University of Texas at Austin and an expert on the topic. "But it's possible that if they weren't doing poetry they may have killed themselves off earlier."

Glad I'm not too into poetry. I like life. :)

The link didn't work for me, Julie. I love writing poetry. Does that say anything about me? Or am I just a tortured soul ;^)

I can't say that I am surprised by this article. In fact, I have written about writers and their short lives on my blog, too. Common knowledge, I suppose. It is nice to have it in writing though :-D
