Not one mention of Mt. Rainer. This anthology had in it some remarkable poems, but the theme of disilusionment and melancholy was sadly depressing. I think Seattle should make there own truely Emerald collection and include the themes of hope and despair as a polar conumdrum of what I think is Seattle's essence. The list of Poets seemed like a huge brag session of regional poohbaa's
