You know, it's often something I forget, but the US does have a Poet Laureate, Billy Collins. The posting of his work The Names today in the Times (and as read when Congress met in a special (PR) session in NYC Friday) reminds us of the traditional function of poets laureate, that of a marker of special occassions.

And its not a bad work, either.
