I LOVE Jeff Goldblum

Jeff Goldblum resurrects fond memories with a journey through his hometown haunts

And a boy lies in the grass ...
And looks up at the sailing clouds,
And longs, and longs, and longs
For what, he knows not:
For manhood, for life, for the unknown world!
-- "Jonathan Houghton,"
Spoon River Anthology

Jeff Goldblum was determined to do it right. He'd brought along a copy of Edgar Lee Masters' "Spoon River Anthology," to let its poems help shape his feelings as he retraced his childhood through Pittsburgh and West Homestead.

Are you sure he's from Pittsburgh, going around writing poetry? What would Ray from the North Side say?
