Hi Tony--I'm glad it reached a least one soul :)

Can hardly wait to see this DVD--once I heard someone's tape of
him reciting his poem 'Kaddish' and it made me just weep. He was
a great poet--not only a writer but a reciter, a speaker of
poetry. Like a few other artists of his period, he saw through
this country and its superficialities and knew where it was
