I was a week late last year in discovering that 2012 was the 45th anniversary of Arlo Guthrie's epic Thanksgiving fable, Alice's Restaurant. I also discovered, all these years later, that with a couple of minor lapses, I still know the entire monologue by heart.
Equally important, I still love it. So I vowed last year that from then on, Alice's Restaurant would become a TGB tradition on Thanks giving and here is again on its 46th anniversary.
It's a fine ol' song, don't you think.
