Neal Cassady, the fast-moving western hero immortalized in Jack Kerouac's On the Road and Visions of Cody and Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, was born this date in 1926. That means he would have been 90 years old today.
Can you picture Neal at 90? It boggles my mind to try. Anyway, Happy Birthday, Neal!
