I Want High School Report Cards to Look Like This 

The Library of Congress has recommended two poems by David Berman for study by high school students. This, to me, is a bit like hearing that the Department of Education has recommended that the Mekons be taught in the standard history curricula under "British Labor Relations circa Margaret Thatcher"; that is to say, it is a pleasant surprise. So, enjoy -- it's not very often you get to link to your favorite rock & roller's work on a .gov page, excepting occasional FOIA releases. Make sure to thank Billy Collins on your way out.
