      Any update on when we might receive premiums?

      Thank you so very much for your note. I was personally mortified and as a person who has spent a vast part of her life following all things Cassady. I felt overwhelmed at how flippant and ridiculous the quote had seemed in lack of context of the entire conversation. I was trying to illustrate for someone who had no background or understanding about Cassady's relevance.

      In several conversations I have had with unenlightened people, they have argued that he was indeed like a certain ill famed hotel heiress and that his legacy was not as surmountable as I and many others know was vast and left an enormous imprint on our cultural fabric.

      I was trying to illustrate that point that he had much more of an impact and that his life such carry much deeper significance and should not be overlooked and added to the empty echoes of modern day celibu-taunts and media vampires. Unfortunately I failed to get my point across and for that I beg forgiveness.

      The illustration and portrait of Neal that is being created is crafted with great respect and adoration and aims to give him proper respect.

      Thank you once again for your insight and please no that my words were not intended to ring so trite an off the mark.

      Thanks Jason! I am so jealous, I tried to get an apartment there and they would not even put me on the waiting list.

      Needless to say I was heart broken but I put in plenty of hours at Charlie Browns easing the pain.

      I lived in the Colburn Hotel/Apts. for a few years, which was Cassady's stomping ground for a bit. Always felt like his literary ghost gave me a little push once in awhile to live outside the box of my 4 walls.
