I wonder what the reaction would be if someone mocked Maya Angelou like that

Via Pundette:

Former US poet laureate and “all-around man of literary distinction” Donald Hall, age 82, was recently invited to the White House and awarded the National Medal of Arts by the president.

Alexandra Petri, “ComPost” blogger, who must have been absent the day they covered courtesy and respect for one’s elders, decided that he looked so dang funny with his long hair and beard that she just had to invite her mannerless readers to join her in making fun of him. I’m guessing they have no idea who he is.

Ms. Angelou is after all eminently mockable.
