57 Years and Counting

In the early hours of this morning, the mysterious Poe Toaster made his/her appearance in Baltimore to place three roses and a half bottle of Cognac on the grave of Edgar Allen Poe. The scene was the same as it has been every January 19th, Poe's birthday, for the past fifty-seven years. The Poe Toaster typically carries out his/her tribute without any disruption from on-lookers, however this year a small group of people decided to cause a bit of a rabble. Perhaps they were trying to unmask the toaster but thankfully were unsuccessful. So those that are curious will have to wait for year fifty-eight before seeing the return of the mysterious Poe Toaster.
