RIP to the Holy Goof, Neal Cassady

Uncredited photo captured here
Today is Neal Cassady's death date (in 1968). He's in good company as a colleague of mine died unexpectedly a few days ago. Maybe they're having an animated conversation right now, Neal going on about literature and Walter going on about history.

Click here for what I said last year about Neal. Some day, when the smoke clears a bit, perhaps I'll say something more about Walter.

Oh, the good they die young, eh?

You can see me on the far right at the beginning of the McClure clip. I'll share more of these as they surface.
