Eloise Klein Healy was selected by Los Angeles’ mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as the poet laureate of the city. What qualifications does she have? Not her birthright: she was born in El Paso, Texas and grew up in rural Iowa. And her poetry certainly is awful. At least the several I read. (Good job, Tony Villar Jr.) Further proof that the wise move to Texas and the non-wise move away. Which could be a good thing. Hmm, I take back that sarcastic good job, Tony Villar Jr. and replace it with a heartfelt: good job, Tony Villar Jr.!
