More on NJ state poet from Stefan Sharkansky on his blog AND on Arutz Sheva site. Nice to see a familiar face there :-)
I love this state poet thing.
Now I think on, I once had a neighbor who was awarded a state prize (I think it was named after the late Israeli PM Levi Eshkol), which entailed receiving a salary for a year, so she could just sit around and write poetry (which is what she did anyway).
OK, all I have to do is learn how to write poetry. Then again, maybe I should work on understanding the poetry other people write first. Oy, Gevald! Who let this lowbrow into Blogistan?
