A couple of years ago, the missus and I went to a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the publication of Ginsberg's HOWL. Rain Crowe was there, among others - members of what are called the Baby Beats, a new generation of poets who followed in the literary footsteps of Ginsberg, Kerouac, et al. I had never "got" beat poetry before that night, but I "get" it now. We celebrated life that night.
