Part I of "Rochester Through the Ages":
Pop Wilmot was so far out! He also seems like someone Warhol would/should have been obsessed with. Because he was crazy and gross, and Warhol was kind of crazy and gross too. (PS - fake photoshop that you download for free is sort of the greatest, even if you suck at it. Check out the program here.)
Things you should know about 60s Rochester: He invented Pop Music. He filmed the Kennedy assassination. He was the first man to walk on the moon. He never went steady with anybody, but wooed ladies with his new "free love" philosophy. As has been noted before, the syphilis was also free. He totally did Marylin Monroe, but also Lady Bird Johnson. He singlehandedly ended the Cuban Missle Crisis. He invented the Internet. He died of a mescaline-related hallucinatory accident after reading Huxley's Doors of Perception.
