Blind Item #7 - Reader Blind

An English Lit professor from a small state college traveled to a large university in another city to attend a symposium on the Beat Generation. One of the original beat poets was speaking there. At a cocktail reception the professor witnessed the famous poet and several other men passing around a photo of a 13 year old naked boy and salivating over it. The professor was disgusted. Apparently, the poet knew the boy and it was not just a random photo. The professor mentioned this to some other academics attending and it was either laughed off or they made excuses for the poet. The professor flew back to where he came from, disillusioned with the beat generation and academia.
