Richard Brautigan was my favorite Beatle

You know you're a Post- Baby Boomer when you had to learn that Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds was not an Elton John song. I remember being told by a nanny that you liked either the Monkeys or the Beatles. They broke up before I began listening to pop music. John became an activist, Paul was determined to return to commercial sounds, and George and Ringo faded to slackerdom, having ever only composed While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Octopus's Garden between them, so I thought. I knew only the Beatles Red and White anthologies. 2622

Joe Lieberman and Jesse James

One of my favorite poems by Richard Brautigan ends thus "My teachers could easily have ridden with Jesse James for all the time they stole from me." 410
