Jack Kerouac on Jeopardy!

A Winthrop, ME farmer was on Jeopardy last night. The final category was revealed to be "American Authors." (I yelled, "Jack Kerouac!")

Here was the final clue:
A fellow author called him "A very unique cat - a Frenc Canadian Hinayan Buddhist Beat Catholic savant."
Can you dig that? And my fellow Mainer was the only one who didn't know it. Color me embarrassed. I have some work to do in my own state re: Kerouawareness.

Here's the news article from today's Kennebec Journal.
