Quite an ego that Jim Irsay has. Irsay owns the Indianapolis Colts and the scroll on which Jack Kerouac wrote "On the Road'' over the course of three weeks. Irsay likes to play around with the scroll, which I guess is his right since he paid close to $2.5 million for it. But anyone who cares about pieces of history as precious as Kerouac's 119-foot-long manuscript might feel a bit upset about Geoff Edgers's story in the Globe today.
I'm looking forward to seeing the scroll, which is now on display in Lowell for the summer.
(Geoff has posted a gallery of photos from his visit to Indiana and Irsay's palatial home. For a list of events related to the showing of the scroll visit ontheroadinlowell.org.)
