Poets for a low dishonest decade

The issue of the Weekly Standard out this morning features its arts editor’s reflections on the cancelled White House poetry event honoring Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and Langston Hughes: “The poets vs. the first lady.” Former Nixon administration White House counsel Leonard Garment also has a column on the subject in this morning’s New York Times: “A song of themselves.”
Another subject I can’t get enough of is that of France. On Thursday the Wall Street Journal carried an excellent column by Christopher Hitchens that it has now made available online: “The rat that roared.”
