Frank, as far as I can tell, you were the direct cause of what happened there in the cookbooks section. Could you please describe it from your point of view (limited first person omniscient, please)—also, if I remember correctly, you arranged that crazy reading at City Lights, where you introduced William as the next “S. Burroughs” and Dirk as the “allegedly risen one.”

Please reply. We’re trying to wrap things up here, and you’re only working, not getting laid (or playing tennis).

P.S. We’ve got a guy working in the San Diego area, so don’t take us there just yet.
