The poet Ted Kooser once said that flying on an airplane was like “being pushed through time in a metal tube.” I think that’s so apt. I love Ted Kooser. One time I wrote him a really sappy letter about what one of his poems meant to me and he wrote me back and his letter said: “Leah: I did not write that poem. Ted Kooser.”
To be fair the poem had a double signature and his was one of them. In short Ted Kooser is a liar and double bylines are totally illegit.
