A Reminder of What is Great in the USA and the UK

This is a wonderful post on many levels. Open Culture brings us a world of fine information across a huge range of topics, and this is a timely reminder for all of us who love and value free speech and the arts. This is Benedict Cumberbatch at the Hay Literary Festival reading a letter from Kurt Vonnegut, from the generation of American writers who did hard physical work before his entry into the arts world was achieved. This is intelligent, inspiring, and a reminder to all of us that free speech is important and can never be taken for granted.
