At play in MacArthur Park

Some people hate the word genius because it implies that abilities are not given out in a fair and equitable manner. So every year when the MacArthur Foundation gives out its awards, there are those who don't want to use the G word. In any event, this year the foundation did a good thing in declaring Ta-Nehisi Coates one, as explained by Yoni Appelbaum. Bonus: The winner himself wise-asses about it.
