Show Description
A Salute to ignorance British news with H.G. Grubbage During the time of college, people feel that great conflict of your private goals and aims being infringed upon by the outside world. When you are out of college you are part of that world that intrudes. Will be at St. Peter's Univ. in Jersey City, NJ at 8:00pm Setting up the tanks for the first college perfomance of the underwater ballet Writer calls Shep lazy because he taped some shows for play while he was away to Florida few a few days recently. Shep claims it is harder work to tape shows than to do them live. Shep continues talking about the 'paradise' of college. Everything is geared to you. People don't realize it when they are there, only after they get out. Many dropouts stay on the campus because they fear losing that feeling of paradise.
Speaking of conflict and speaking of intrusion - this is WOR
