If Brooklynites love the borough so much they should just stay there. Brooklyn i just that, Brooklyn. Nothing special here.

You can not have a show on spoken word and not invite Mr. Henry Rollins. He has been doing spoken word for almost 30 years. Most of my friends first heard the term "spoken word" in regard to him.
