Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
2001 was a heavy year. First that awful day in September, then two months later, almost to the day, we lost Ken Kesey, one of the greatest American authors of our time - A Philosopher, Poet, Artist and Shaman...he tilted the paradigm of America on it's head and helped change society for the better, at least for a little while, with his crazy gang, that bus and all his writing...
Ken Kesey was an inspiration to many, including me, who ran after my dream of being some sort of writer, going through the Journalism school that Ken himself went through and later taught at...
Ken Kesey, you were one of the greats. I wish I could have shaken your hand to thank you for your inspiration.
RIP Ken. Sept 17, 1935- November 10, 2001.
