Oh, yes, I do remember, the beat poets and the "beatniks" as they were called, although I was just a child during their brief reign over North Beach. Lenore Kandel, Gregory Corso and Lawrence Ferlinghetti (and City Lights Bookstore) come to mind. And so, it is only fitting and proper that we stop here and pay our respects to Enrico Banducci, the owner/raconteur of the famed Enrico's of North Beach - he left this world just a day or so ago at the age of 85.
