One response to Burroughs at Thanksgiving

  1. Thanks for young idealism as well as for old wisdom! I loved his voice and ironic message…
    Yet I can’t help but feel that today he would be among those who Occupy Wall Street

    Thanks for the new generation of young who are picking up the torch that we once held high!
    May God Bless America!
