Where Did Lenny Go?

(Inspired by a letter from my Spiritual Advisor)

And did you see what they did to Lenny Bruce? All the man ever wanted to do was get up on stage in dark smoky nightclubs and tell dirty jokes. But They said that it was "indecent". They made the mistake of thinking that words can harm others. They wanted to protect the audience from the artist. They wanted to decide what people could and could not say in public. They didn't like what Lenny had to say so they hounded him around the world. They threw him in jail for "just words" and threw the book at anyone who dared to let him talk. The coroner's report says that old Lenny died of a morphine overdose but everyone knows that They were the ones that really killed him. They broke his heart and his spirit by taking his words away from him.

Thank the gods They know what's best for us.

Or Kill Me!

    There is a great story I heard about Lenny. He was performing one night and the police came in to arrest him. They also asked for the I.D.s of everyone there. Anyone not complying would be arrested. Only one person didn't show his I.D. and was arrested along with Lenny. That lone man was George Carlin. Both men were taken to the station in the same vehicle. I would have loved to have heard their conversation.

    Awesome story. I would have loved to be a fly on the door of that cop car. I consider both of them heroes because they took no shit, especially when it came to freedom of speech.
