    Freedom of speech ennobles even the silence between words! This is gonna be a straight up 'old school' reading: just three readers doing our thing, no frills. Well, one frill. ONE BIG FRILL, actually; there'll be music by Mason Summit and Irene Greene! And who's reading? That would be me, Susan Hayden, and Dan Saucedo, perhaps the last real gentleman in America.  Oh, and the title of this show is an anagram. Solve the mystery and win a prize!
