Yeah, well maybe . . . but for me it's more like . . . well. I know once I read this book The Collected Speeches of Spiro Agnew which I'd bought for a dime at a book sale. I don't know why I did it. I'm just sick, I guess. But anyway, after I read it--and I had to read it all--I immediately had to find some Abbie Hoffman to wash the taste out of my mouth. Or out of my nose, or ass, or whatever. Articles? I don't write articles. I'm not an academic. (BK)
Don't believe him, folks. He's just as much an academic as you or I. It's sad, really, that such an intelligent, well-read person could be so heavily into denial. And it doesn't seem to make much difference that he's been involved in several twelve-step programs for going on five years, either. He insists on denying that he's an academic. A peculiarly virulent form of academic addiction, akin to insisting over and over, "But I'm not drunk!" (DR)
