Trump inaugural puts artists in quandary

Several months ago, before the presidential election, San Francisco poet and author Dean Rader found himself engaged in a philosophical debate with some of his fellow poets: If Donald Trump were to win the presidency, and if he asked one of them to compose a poem to be read at the inauguration, would they do it?

Rader didn't know many politically conservative poets, in general, and his friends found the prospect of Trump's election to be "terrifying" and offensive.

This week's presidential debate! It was a something, right? Since presidential debate season is upon us , this time around we're taking a slight detour from films: For our next Political Theater segment, we'll watch a " Game On ," the debate episode of The West Wing .

Bush-esque Governor Ritchie, and the episode contains, for my money, everything I love to hate-and hate to love-about The West Wing : blithe partisanship, broad-brush treatments of complicated public policies, optimistic institution porn, characters delightfully pranking each other.
