Michael Theune has joined the Plumbline School. He's the real deal, as critics go : does his homework.

So...what, the rest of us are hacks?

I can live with that.

When you are angling for tenure and promotion, you tend to get serious, fast.

But you are right, Theune is the real deal, as he makes his livelihood writing and critiquing.

Oh no, Matt! No hacks allowed!

(Although one of the "manifestos" in the latest Poetry magazine (Michael Hoffman's?), declares that groups ARE for hacks. We must prove him wrong! Forward, Plumbers!)
