Rick Santorum ❤ Langston Hughes

Sometimes I wish the media would bite it's collective tongue so we could see just how far a politician would take a misappropriated metaphor. Even better, someone should have shared the rest of Langston Hughes' poem with Rick Santorum but not tell him the source. Maybe the man who's name shall not be Googled would have borrowed even more from the poem written by the possible homosexual and well-known Communist, Langston Hughes.

There was an intermediate stage where it was showing up as ❤ because my escape code didn't know what to do with hex entities.

The unicode was rendering as I expected in Chrome 11.0.696.60 on Windows.

That's beautiful. Totally wish Santorum had gotten a chance to really put that ... uh ... "out" there.

(And I've hacked the code a bit to change & behavior, hopefully this is closer to the intent)
