Yesterday, the Times’s Arts Beat blog featured a post titled “Roth and Oates to receive National Humanities Medals.”
Which led me to ask: Where’s Hall?
Today, I learned, from an amazing photo on the National Journal Tumblr, that Hall was right there the whole time!
Poet Donald Hall, that is. Oh, and the Oates was Joyce Carol. Still, how on earth did the Times let slip the opportunity to run a headline that read “Hall and Oates to receive National Humanities Medals”? What a sad day for journalism.
