- A poet who knows what it is he wants to say may be sure it's been said already. permalink
- We forget that most of what people read when everybody read all the time was junk — competent junk. Now they get it from television. The casual entertainment people get in The evening from the box was what they used to get from the short fiction in The Saturday Evening Post. That magazine and others like it were the situation comedies and cop shows of their era. It is not a cultural loss that this particular use of literacy has been transferred from one medium to another. permalink
