Boys and Girls in America
Remembered because Tommy gave me the latest Hold Steady album, and also casting some light on recent events, here's one of my all time favorite Kerouac quotes:
bq. “...boys and girls in America have such a sad time together; sophistication demands that they submit to sex immediately without proper preliminary talk. Not courting talk - real straight talk about souls, for life is holy and every moment is precious.”
It's a good one to remember. Published in 1957 too, meaning it was written and thought even earlier.
And, apropops nothing, my company as if it were run by lolcats.
