If you're shooting for accuracy, try to find the Biblical name for a clueless class clown. For now, just be happy that you can even realize that your ass is in pain.

Err, ah mean Ishmael.

Insist on your freedom...

When you've understood this scripture, throw it
away. If you cant understand this scripture,
throw it away. I insist on your freedom.

for Jack Kerouac: liver sodden with cheap wine, rambling incoherently, and obsessed with his mother. Wow, sounds like john de.

Never met Kerouac nor did any reading on his personal life. I did like his style as I also like various others. Genius sometimes brings it own form of demons, and a lot of gifted writers have them. As for john de, he has his own personality and so do we all have ours. Change him enuff and he will have yours, mine, or whom ever is successful at doin' the changin'.

a scary thought huh, yours or mine? :)
