Ann Magnuson exhibits versatility and satiric brilliance as she moves from evangelist to radio phone-in sex goddess to pop singer lost on the radio dial. With poetic elegance and a sharp yet soothing with David Cale allows introspection to our most primal needs and desires. The Uproar Tapes, New York City,1986.

Where is Raj Thackeray and his "BRAVE" Sena??
Tell him that 200 NSG commandos from Delhi ( no Marathi manoos, all south and north Indians) have been sent to Mumbai to fight the terrorists so that he can sleep peacefully tonight at Shivaji Park. Please forward this so that it finally reaches the coward bully!!
I Sit and Look Out, Walt Whitman
I sit and look out upon all the sorrows of the world, and upon all
oppression and shame,
I hear secret convulsive sobs from young men at anguish with
themselves, remorseful after deeds done,
I see in low life the mother misused by her children, dying,
neglected, gaunt, desperate,
I see the wife misused by her husband, I see the treacherous seducer
of young women,
I mark the ranklings of jealousy and unrequited love attempted to be
hid, I see these sights on the earth,
I see the workings of battle, pestilence, tyranny, I see martyrs and
I observe a famine at sea, I observe the sailors casting lots who
shall be kill'd to preserve the lives of the rest,
I observe the slights and degradations cast by arrogant persons upon
laborers, the poor, and upon negroes, and the like;
All these--all the meanness and agony without end I sitting look out upon,
See, hear, and am silent.
