But we could not stay forever at Grendel's Den and we paid and left. No, we
did not dine and dash in Massachusetts. We walked around and checked out a
few bookstores. I found some anti-homophobia zine with an intro by Ivan
Stang. In general, it wasn't such a bad introduction, although I felt that
he was a puerile and infantile man who unfortunately possesses an ounce of
talent and an annoying amount of luck. Several people I know disagree with
me. Several others do not. Enough about Ivan Stang. I don't know, at least
he's not Bob Black. Okay, okay, enough petty, catty, backbiting...
We walked around the Harvard environs and bought a box camera, but did not
use it in Cambridge. Probably because I was anxious to get going. I don't
know why, it was sort of stupid. Perhaps I was afraid of appearing like a
tourist, which is stupid because I was a tourist, although, of course, I
would prefer the titles renowned and beloved world traveller or esteemed
visiting scholar. Regardless, I wasn't going to see the place for a while
and should've gotten a photo snapped.
