I agree that the article was totally mailed-in, but I can't spot the error unless you mean the reference to Columbia as Kerouac's "alma mater" (even though he didn't graduate). But according to the dictionary, "alma mater" doesn't necessarily imply graduation, so it must be something else?

Another likely error is that a movie of "On The Road" will begin filming next year. I've heard this every year since 1995 and it hasn't happened yet. But I don't think this is the error you mean either ...


I can tell you this much. Luc Sante does Kerouac more justice in this Sunday's NYTBR.
