The home page suggests rhetorically that I may have "finished that Marie Kondo book" (for those of you playing along at home, it's called "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing"). Well, yes, I picked up a copy, but I left it on a pile of Mad Magazine back issues and now I can't find the dang thing.

I've met and spoke w/ Allen G but never met Jack (although I've known many like him).
I don't think Ginsberg and Kerouac were much alike.
