Mr. Bib surprised himself, with help from friends and fellow bibliophiles, at recent Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, getting pretty inspired, grateful, just plain happy during Gary Snyder's chat with David L. Ulin, book reviewer and, as it happens, contributor to current Santa Monica Review. Among many topics, the poet whose youth charged up so many, whose writing and politics influenced the policy decisions of a state and its then-governor (one Jerry Brown) and the California Arts Commission and so many college lit class syllabi, Synder mentioned, joyfully, anarchism, of all things.

(Foreword: the neofascist paranoid scumbags supporting the Western and Israeli States will jump on postings like this one to accuse the critics of being part of a "fringe minority praising these attacks". To those: If you've got the mental capacity to compute the following information, you'll realize you are part of the problem, not those who don't follow your BS...)
