Kay Ryan is Poet Laureate

Kay Ryan is the new Poet Laureate of the United States. To listen to the few critics left in poetry she is an innovator but can any poet who is a follower of Ted Kooser be an innovator? I realize that the post of Poet Laureate does not mean much but when you think about the many poets in the United States of her age that could be chosen as Poet Laureate you wonder if the goal of the Library of Congress's goal is to put us all asleep.
