                       Happy Birthday!

          Essential but less well known Beat poet,

                        Bob Kaufman

                     was born 4/18/1925

                        (died 1986)

It is said that San Francisco columnist, Herb Caen coined the term "beatnick" to describe Bob Kaufman.

        IN TIMES OF NATIONAL PERIL, ABOMUNISTS, AS REALITY
        AMERICANS, STAND READY TO DRINK THEMSELVES
        TO DEATH FOR THEIR COUNTRY.

                "ABOMUNIST MANIFESTO" c.1958.
(Beat poetry probably has much more to do with jazz than folkmusic but it has a whole bunch to do with USian folkways. I knew Bob somewhat and I liked him.)
