so long dear prankster
ken was a wizzard and he offered us magic that we gladly could not deny. he found a kool place for us all to be together, where we could pass the test, become brothers, and share our minds. he gave us all treasures beyond jewels and gold that will become ever more valuable as his tales are retold. his fame and his pranks and good deeds and high art have all entered into the past, and yet in the wisdom of his true prankster's heart he always knew "nothing lasts". i never met ken kesey, but i admire him greatly. he is a true patriot and pioneer of freedom, and a hero of american culture. fare thee well brother, may you rest in peace.
