I’d love to see this. Who knows, maybe it will get to tour the world. Great art is always born of real experience; and surely ~ life in the US doesn’t get much more real than in its vile, misanthropic prison ‘slave galleys.’
White man’s burden, indeed.
Splendid 100th episode Mr Hedges!
Thanks for watching, David. Really great show. I’d love to see the performance, too.
