When I saw Jelly Boy the Clown in West Philly ten days ago, he mentioned starting a Phillip Lopate Fan Club. After all, no one better represents the angry reaction to the ULA presence than Phil-- denouncing Jack Kerouac (and us) from the Miller Hall stage like a stupid big attack dog while his handler looked on proudly.
Maybe ULA Webmaster Patrick Simonelli can add this feature, "Sign Up for the PHILLIP LOPATE FAN CLUB!" as a way to express our thanks. (Special Phillip Lopate puppets are on the way.)
