The Poet Laureate and Stephen Colbert

First, congratulations to the next U.S. Poet Laureate. The Library of Congress announced Thursday that William S. Merwin will become the 17th U.S. Poet Laureate this fall.

While we're on the subject, let's revisit a former laureate, Robert Pinksy, and his notable appearance on the Stephen Colbert show where he moderated a " Meta-Free-Phor-All" contest between Colbert and actor, Sean Pean.
