Paul Hunter's "Shopworn" Language

Matt Kidd called me to tell me that our former high school English teacher, Paul Hunter, was appearing in The NewsHour with Jim Lerher:

It was awesome to see Paul on national TV and to hear him read a selection of his poetry, play his guitar, and show off his workshop. Paul lives down the street from me and I often run into him when he is out walking his dog, Annie. I was happy other people could now see what a fascinating character he is. Meg and I composed a short little poem about seeing him on TV and Meg's love of some of the phrases he uses in his poems. He wrote back from the farm in Indiana. It was great to hear from him again!
