Dear American Thinker,

I am an American poet (author of three full—length collections of poetry and a forthcoming biography of the San Francisco poet Robert Duncan) and university professor in the English Departments at Brooklyn College and Long Island University. I often teach English courses that include a survey of current political events, including the ongoing crisis in Palestine. I read the article you printed naming Ammiel Alcalay as a dangerous leftist poet and I think you are totally out to lunch. Please add my name to your list of dangerous leftist poets. We are everywhere. Thanks very much.

assistant professor, Brooklyn College, Dept of Creative Writing
