About this site:
In 1993, I spent the year writing in a blank datebook from 1954. Now, in 2010, I'm posting each page on the web and writing about it. You may want to start at the beginning.

1954: December 6-7

Did Robert Mapplethorpe die that weekend? Hmm, no. For whatever reason, this self-portrait was in the New York Times that day, and I cut it out.

There was another bit of this character description taped in here, but it came untaped and disappeared years ago.

I wasn't terribly familiar with the rockabilly punk scene at that time, but this description makes it sound like the kid was a part of it. Most of Columbus' punks were either main line punks, straight edge or gutter punks (crusties), so it was weird seeing a greaser at Insomnia.
