The best way to appreciate Robert Frost is to maintain at most only a passing familiarity with poetry.

My favorite part of the junk article...

Leave it to the British to find the most awesome punishment for those kids.

If it were America, we'd have given them all 3 years in prison, and the guy who bought the beer would be villified in the press, and give 10 years to life.

The British? Give them poetry lessons!

Vermont's in Wales, isn't it? They have unicorns there.

OM really confused me. I thought all this time I was wrong for thinking Robert Frost was American.

Don't you have to actually be awake at 7:35 to post "the morning news"? Otherwise it's cheating.
