Beat News: January 3 1996

Beat Generation News
1. I'm happy to kick off the new year with 'A Note From Los Gatos' an interview with John Cassady, a resident of Northern California who happens to be the son of Neal Cassady.

2. J. D. Salinger and Jack Kerouac had a lot in common -- both went to prep school in New York and spent the 1950's writing poignant novels and discovering Buddhism -- but I understand that they never liked each other. I think Holden Caulfield and Sal Paradise would have been great friends, though. Anyway, I recently came across The Holden Server, a cool little site that delivers a new quote from The Catcher in the Rye every time you visit it.
