Information about your publication: In 2004, several Oregon State underclassmen attended a poetry workshop. They bonded and began meeting to discuss poetry, politics, love, and life in general. They started referring to themselves as The Toe Goods which is slang they borrowed from The Warm Springs Reservation. Toe Good means ?Bad? or ?Horrible?. The word ?toe? often modifies the following adjective, creating the ajdective?s antonym. If your teenage son used the car without permission, you would say, ?Charles is being toe good.?.The members have since parted. They have traveled to South America, Turkey, Europe, and Hawaii. Some have successfully begun and/or completed their graduate programs. They have lived with their Mothers, they have lost loved ones, and a few continue to write earnestly today. This website is a byproduct of their meetings.
