Just having looked at the Wash Post article, and having a "Liberal Arts"
background, and then seeing that the first quote is from a 23-year-old
poet, who is attempting to do whatever she's doing, and having been a
journalist for many years, it reaffirms my reason for reading professional
journals first, newspapers dead last (which is in a dead race for last
place with TV news)...
It's just an attempt by a "news" reporter to put a fresh spin on an old
story. I've done it myself...
