Another way to celebrate... "Howl Against Censorship"

Check this out. The fiftieth anniversary of the decision that Allen Ginsberg's poem Howl is a work of artistic value and is not obscene is marked with the poem's being censored yet again. The New York radio station was merely intimidated by the threat of massive fines imposed by the FCC, and thus agreed to broadcast it in a program to air only online. Read the article, and then listen to Ginsberg himself read the poem. It will be good for you.
