Bizzare that the Post ignores the major issues and focuses on the minor. It’s almost as if Fred Hiatt temporarily took over the rest of the A section.
Happy Holidays all.

I just noticed that the WP has a permanent link to Onion headlines on its homepage. Hey, why not! Journalism is SO FUN!
Correction – The above quote is from 1975 not 1974.
“I don’t think he [Robert Frost] was a big man in the sense that Pound or Eliot were. – Pound probably had the finest ear as far as the English language is concerned, but he never stayed with one style and developed it. He was an innovator, but he had a philosophy which didn’t really hang together. The fact that he called one book Personae, or “masks,” is reflective of his poetry and the different facades he had. I don’t think anyone ever took Pound’s politics seriously. It was another mask. I think it was part of that kaleidoscopic side of Pound. I don’t think he was an integrated man. – [T.S.] Eliot was a whole man. He’s monumental. I have a tremendous respect for his consistancy.”
