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

Just as the Heisman Trophy stands for a level of excellence in playing college football, so the position of poet laureate stands for a level of excellence in writing poetry. That the governor believes that such an award should not be selected by a panel of people who are familiar with poetry is very odd.

I know next to nothing about football and I would never, under any circumstances, believe that I would be qualified to decide who deserved a most valuable player award.

The governor shows that he does not understand that writing poetry is a discipline (just like playing the piano or painting portraits) that is performed at all levels (from beginner to advanced) and that the poet laureate is a title bestowed on a highly advanced practitioner.
