Mark Doty responds to threats with dignity

Following a series of threatening letters sent to 11 of Seattle's
gay and lesbian bars, Mark Doty responded to the possibility that the
letters cite one of his poems:

This quarter I'm teaching a GLBT Literature class, a lecture
course with 75 students enrolled. We'll be sure to discuss some
of Mark Doty's poems, because the best response to violence
is to honor the voices of those who resist it.
