    They're ba-a-ack! They're coming out of the woodwork. I've been seeing them all over the place, at coffee houses, down on the beach, wandering around Burbank...

    What's up with that? Maybe a response to the conservative political climate that's been happening recently? Cool, daddy-o. It's nice to know there's still some philosophcal diversity in the world.

    I had a beatnik goatee for a while at the beginning of the year. It's threatening to come back.

    I have a feeling it's a reaction to all the "emoting" that's popular with the wannabe hipsters.

    All the beatniks I know come out and tell their "poetry" at this open mic night. They're all about how "The Man" is keeping them down or screwing up the world or whatever. Meanwhile, most of these bums live in Gov't assisted housing or get money from "The Man" in some other way. They're too intelligent to be employable. :spit:
