Show Description
Feeling good and it is all going to work out Last minute cures Specialized tours Self inspectroscope A flat baseball bat & a square ball, or making difficult things easy Talent equality* Life is art, or is it!?!
Notes
*On many occasions I have wondered at the similarity of Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and Jean. Here is another example of an obscure Sci-Fi story that runs parallel to the subject Jean discusses. Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harrison_Bergeron It is easy to relate this show with the previous show, the common theme being what I refer to as the dumbing down of America. Machines that keep idiots that would have been killed alive (October 8, 1963) are of the same vein as flat bats and square balls; easy to drive cars and slob art!
