Quotes

Thanks for printing the wonderful essay Saturday on the Beat Generation by Stewart Spears (New Voices: "Beats shed light on what it means to be mad to live" )
"Charla didn’t really see gays or bisexuals as especially different from straight men. She figured that they all had the capacity to be goofy or decent."
"It's a reflection on turning all guns into works of art so they don't hurt anyone," he said. "The gun is over the mantle, but I was trying to make something non-lethal."
Kerouac famously wrote: "[T]he only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars."
