Politics and poetry 

The subjects in current mass media frenzy -- Kobe Bryant, Rush Limbaugh and the World Series -- fuse together like a really bad poem (see page 18). People, it seems, would rather talk about a movie star winning office in California than looking at the politician in their own back yard. Speaking of, whom do you plan to vote for in the upcoming school board election?

Probably around two. -  - How many people do you know that don't vote? About 50 or so. -  - Who is the worst poet ever? I can't think of any bad poets but I do like a lot of poets like Frost and Edgar Allen Poe. I like Poe because he is really out there. I like a lot of off-the-wall things. -

I don't trust the water bill. I want the water to go to the farmers in Kansas because they need it as much as we do but I don't want the water to go to California because they don't need it as much as Colorado. -  - Why don't people care about politics anymore? It is just hard to pay attention when there are so many new names but they are all the same people with the same ideas anyway. -  - How many people do you know who vote? About 75 percent of my friends vote.  -  - Who is one of the worst poets ever? I would say me. I can't write poetry. It is hard expressing my thoughts in ways that don't end up in long rants. -

People in my age group might feel like they don't have as much of a say in things as they really do.  -  - Who is you least favorite poet? W. B. Yeats -- he's really long-winded. I mean, you can describe something but when you start going on and on about it, I start to lose interest. -
