1. Burroughs reading his prayer ....

... from the book he co-authored with S. Clay Wilson in 1989, Tornado Alley.

2. My favorite line.....

"Thanks for the wild turkey and passenger pigeons destined to be shit of of wholesome American guts".......

Burroughs always had a knack for cutting right to the chase, never sugar-coating a syllable.

Along with "Alice's Restaurant" they make up my Thanksgiving tradition. I've gone without the turkey, dressing, relatives and such, but I've never gone without those two mainstays.
