    Terrific episode! Thank you. I’ll be 66 this month, so missed the rap sensation, but there are so many songs — rock, Motown, folk, classic country — whose lyrics I can recite, just the way Glenn was doing. But, as John says, we don’t have poetry. I tried and tried to memorize poems or speeches to recite for my classes (I taught 11th grade English for nine years), but it never worked. I can’t do it. Maybe it’s the music or maybe it’s the repetition of so many hearings that make the difference.

    Column writing: I was a columnist at a suburban newspaper in SoCal for 30 years, writing as many as five per week. Obviously, you need always to be on the lookout for columns. After a while you just get in a mindset, and you see the column potential in things you would never have seen before. And, yes, some of those ideas came through about three hours before deadline. But again, I agree with John — best job I ever had.
