Mike Snider's Formal Blog and Sonnetarium

Guess who Mike's mystery correspondent is? The problem with Mike is that he is right about 90% of the time, but makes a fetish of the 10% about which he is wrong.

What member of the distinguished editorial board accepted these poems: Justice, Kennedy, Hollander?
