Robert Pinsky = Good Times

Further confirmation of my theory that Robert Pinsky is a poet you'd want to invite to all your cocktails parties can be found here, where he judges a "Meta-Free-Phor All" between Stephen Colbert and Sean Penn from last Thursday's Colbert Report. (And in case any alert readers are wondering, Pinsky's Wikipedia page has already been changed to reflect the appearance.)

And if that's not enough Pinsky for your Monday, here's a link to several poems recorded in 1996, and here's a link to NBA nominee James McMichael reading Pinsky's 'City Elegies.' Or, as Colbert mentioned, you can see him this Saturday, April 28th, at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in DC.
