Poe Ballantine

Poe Ballantine, author of Things I Like About America, just lost his job as a janitor when all the rural schools in his county were closed. A documentary about him entitled Poe Ballantine: A Writer in America should be available soon on, as should his true-crime book Love and Terror on the Howling Plains of Nowhere. He lives in Chadron, Nebraska (on the howling plains of nowhere), with his wife and son.
