Thread Name: Poetry: Edgar A. Guest
Subject: RE: BS: Edgar A. Guest
Edgar A. Guest, and he was a favorite of my mother, too, may have written corny stuff, but he wrote it well, for crying out loud. Those of you who accuse him of writing corn -- have you ever read badly written corn? That can be so bad it is painful to read. And the author usually hands it to you to read, and waits with expectant smile, for your comments. I usually say something lame if insincere, because I know they don't want my opinion, they want praise.
I can't remember anything in particular about Bud Guest's radio programs but I do remember enjoying them.
