From one Kentuckian to another, Ed, thanks so much for visiting.
Thanks so much for being one of the brighter spots in this Commonwealth
we love so much but has so much to overcome. You and Guerney and
Wendall, et.al. make me proud to be a Kentuckian.

Ed, this might have been the best interview ever in inkwell, and there 
have been some great ones.  It was also my first introduction to you and 
your writing and now I must find more.  I will miss your voice here, the 
first thing I read every day for the last couple of weeks.  Thanks so much 
for being here.

Been a wonderful discussion back up the stairways to our shared past.
Thank you.

I was out of town for effectively about a month, including the week
during which this conversation with Ed concluded, so didn't get around
to injecting my comments on answers and on other comments. Let me add
that yes, DRT is a landmark book to me. A couple of lesser-known works
of the 60s also resonate with me, one being Freewheelin Frank,
Secretary of the Angels, as told to Michael McClure by Frank Reynolds;
and Be Not Content, A Subterranean Journal by William J. Craddock.

Ed, your piece on the theft of your typewriter from your office in
Palo Alto must be added to the Great Snapshots of the 60s album. It
perfectly captures the feel of that wrinkled paisley time and the
bizarre sorts of characters you'd meet, some not at all the sorts of
people that your parents wanted you to be hanging out with, nor that
you especially wanted to hang out with either, truth be known. Funny
thing, among the characters I ran into along that golden road were a
couple of bikers named Yogurt and Raisin. Whether it was the same
Yogurt, who knows? Perhaps there were many ...

I will now begin checking out the lesser-known books you mentioned if
I can obtain them ... Thanks for a great conversation!

When Peter Rowan and Tony Rice played in Lousiville, KY last Friday
(Aug. 28, 2009), Ed McClanahan reports that they asked him to open with
a reading.  Ed read excerpts from his 1972 piece, "Grateful Dead I
Have Known" and said that he had a great response from the crowd of
over 200 or so.
