Re: “Opinion: McCrory’s mean joke, a poet laureate who’s barely a poet

Interesting, of all the opinions I've seen this one reads to me as the kindest towards the person. I also appreciated the well done critique of the work, something I think everyone is struggling with how to kindly, fairly phrase.

The call to support her is a good one. I don't see her stepping aside as a good option, it sets a precedent where people could be bullied out if others don't like the work.

Chris, the wayback machine and cached pages confirms it was more than gossip. There's also a facebook page where the claim is still up for the first book. https://m.facebook.com/profile.php?id=203350669734918
I find the Gilbert-Chappell misstatement worse than the Pushcart one tho, what lack of gratitude for the experience of being mentored.

I'm holding my breath, hoping that there were not hidden ideological motives at play, if we start seeing antiabortion or pulluourselfupbootstrap poems from our laureate my head will explode.
