Richard Cohen has the right idea about the poet laureate of New Jersey. My only petty little disagreement is with the headline: Anti-Semitism, Not Poetry. The term “poetry” identifies a genre of literature, not the content. There’s no reason why poetry can’t be bigoted. There are plenty of reasons why it shouldn’t be.
