Poetic justice, they say

So, some college kids trashed Robert Frost’s house and part of their punishment was they had to attend two sessions covering Frost’s poetry.

I think it’s a great idea, but I don’t think two sessions is nearly enough. Why not a whole semester’s worth of classes? Probably cause they couldn’t get somebody to donate their time for a whole semester to teach the class. But still. I think this kind of punishment takes some real time to impact.

At the end of the article, the kids are described as declining snacks to leave as quickly as possible – seems to me like they didn’t learn anything and they’re just eager to get out of the room.

But it’s something. A beginning.
