Is this a re-post or did I just pop through a worm-hole?

I fired it off yesterday but the mp3 file wasn't working. It should be good to go now.

I tried listening to a Lenny Bruce album in High School and for the life of me it went completely over my head. Jokes about Saul Bellow and Fascism. I wasn't...ready, let's just say.

Now I love him.

Yeah, too many showbiz references and Yiddish sayings for a kid to get probably. But he ages well, at least his earlier records before he went off the deep end. Then again, the complete Carnegie Hall concert is a tour de force.
