Edgar Allen Poe's Birthday

Today is Edgar Allen Poe's 202nd birthday. This is the second year that "The Poe Toaster" has not shown up to leave three roses and a partially-filled bottle of French cognac at Poe's grave site. The mysterious mourner visited the grave with gifts on Poe's birthday every year from 1949-2009.

As a Poe tribute, here's a video clip of one of my favorite Simpson's Halloween Specials: Homer Simpson reenacting "The Raven" with James Earl Jones narrating.
