…isn't there, Deborah? I was thinking about the young woman poet who spoke at Biden's innauguration. Obviously, she was chosen for the quality of her work, but I suspect the fact that her age, beauty, poise, and background were factors in the choice as well. Old, white, male, and cranky Robert Frost wouldn't have stood a chance.
I believe you are right about that. She is very talented but other factors do need to be considered when making such a prestigious appointment.
As a side question: I would SO MUCH APPRECIATE IT, Denise, if you would tell me how you got that little envelope to come up on your profile page. Try as I might, I cannot get that to come up on mine!
I hope I don't seem presumptuous to ask you for your help with this! It's just that you seem so kind and helpful, I will ,like Blanche DuBois in The Street Car Named Desire, hope for the kindness of strangers!
