Happy birthday to poet Alfred Joyce Kilmer, born on this day in 1886. The library in Lawndale was named after Kilmer, and I feel like there's probably a fanfic in there somewhere. Why Kilmer? Did he have some kind of connection to Lawndale? Or was it all just a ploy to make a cheap "tree" visual gag?
Today is also the anniversary of the Altamont Free Concert in 1969, which Jake not only attended but received a refund for. Gouka Ryuu wrote a short scene about it, and I would love to see more.
