The Brandeis debate

If you've never read about or listened to the 1959 Brandeis debate featuring Jack Kerouac and several other notables, click here for a summary and a link to the audio from the WYNC Archives (45 minutes long and be warned, it takes a while to load). The question posed to the panel was, "What is the Beat Generation?"

Jack called the question "'very silly because we should be wondering tonight, is there a world?'"

I love this stuff. Enjoy.
