HuffPo jumps on the Kerouac bandwagon

Thanks to the On The Road movie, we will now experience all sorts of Kerouac articles in various places. Click here for one in the Huffington Post. It's not a bad compilation of Kerouac sites in San Fran, but they are the obvious, touristy sites. The Beat Generation in San Francisco by Bill Morgan might be more up your alley if you're a real beat aficionado.

It's going to get harder and harder not to experience frustration with all the superficial Kerouactivities going on. Like Barbara Mandrell sang, "I was country when country wasn't cool."

We'll know that we loved Jack way before the Hollywood attention. Right?

The Morgan book is great, very entertaining! Same goes for his "New York" book.
