In Wednesday's Ramble, Alison Stewart and Luke Burbank noted the 50th anniversary of a court ruling that poet Alan Ginsberg's Howl wasn't obscene. Check out this amazing 2006 package from All Things Considered, and read the full poem here.
And now, a care package of links from today's show:
Just checked out rotten neighbor. Interesting. I'm relieved to see that I wasn't on it.

Concerning the micro trends story from the show, I hope that the 25-44 year old NPR listener is far larger than a micro trend. However, I reckon that the 25-44 year old NPR listener who can tolerate celebrity news is much more like a micro trend than the just "young" public radio listener trend.

FYI -- Working as a high school English teacher, I thought I'd mention that The "Howl" link doesn't make it through my school's filter. www.poets.org might be a better link for listeners.

Someone better make sure these two neighbors are mapped and indicated. I'd never buy a house in that neighborhood.
