    So this is random but I gave you and Andy two random postcards when I came back last time. One of them had this photo on it, I think? Anyway, I saw it with the following quote on...tumblr: “Oh the Beat generation was just a phrase I used in the 1951 written manuscript of On the Road to describe guys like Moriarty who run around the country in cars looking for odd jobs, girlfriends, kicks. It was thereafter picked up by West Coast Leftist groups and turned into a meaning like “Beat mutiny” and “Beat insurrection” and all that nonsense.” —Jack Kerouac
