David I now understand, please accept my apology if I was rude and too critical.  Yes I do have a disability myself; post traumatic stress disorder as a result of my time in Vietnam during the war.

How could someone on this list with all the tributes to Seamus Heaney from all over the world use Fox News as a source?  What serious person would use Fox for any source?  Of course you are absolutely right, Heaney is the 21st master of poetry.  Paul Muldoon is no where near the level of Heaney.  Why was a comparison made to Eliot and Muldoon?
