Show Description
Shep spends the whole show reading "The Hunting of the Snark" by Lewis Carroll. At the end he says that this should be required reading by all the under-graduates, twice a year, along with the Army general orders. He compares Carroll's 'nonsense' to Herman Woulk's 'sense'
Special thanks to David Director for providing this show and David Singer for originally recording it and preserving it over these years.
