The Late Lenny Bruce used to say that he wanted to talk about how things
are, not what they should be in an idealized America. If he had been alive, he would be appalled by 9/11, the Anthrax case, the WMD's in Iraq, the War on Iraq, the Abu Ghraib tortures and on and on and on.
Lenny would have demanded the truth at all costs.

1. God, if Lenny came back he'd say, "I've been gone 40 years, and this is
how you've progressed?" The climate of repression would be very familiar to him.

2. I had the good fortune to see Lenny live on stage in Greenwich village.
He was dynamite. We do not have anybody like him.Totally honest and brave.
