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
    Because my definition of every cynic is: a disappointed idealist!

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