The Wayne State Police were waiting for us when we pulled into Detroit. Of course John immediately assumed the position but their presence was a good thing as they wanted to escort us to a prime parking spot mid-campus. ML Liebler, Poet and Professor at Wayne State, had arranged for our performance in Detroit. As ML had a pretty full schedule the weekend of our arrival he turned us over to one of his students, a young guy named Noah.

Noah pulled out all the stops for our visit. He called in favors from friends in the Communications Department and they created beautiful Six by Six banners celebrating our performance. I guess those folks had never heard of John Allen Cassady, though, as my name is the only one mentioned. I needled John for days over that one.

Hundreds of students streamed by the Beatmobile during the day. At the evening’s performance I counted almost two hundred in attendance. People lined up six deep after the show to get their books signed. All in all a pretty great reception.
