    Love it, Joe. I have been thinking of Judy Collins’ song Send in the Clowns in relation to this past election. I like your idea of using poetry in the teaching of other disciplines–disclaimer here, I’m a poet–and using it to help students learn critical thinking. Come to think of it, perhaps journalism schools need a heavy dose of it. The journalists, as you note, seem not to have used much critical thinking in this past election. Everyone would have gone home early to have dinner.
