JediScum, you are completely correct..
I remember Bukowski jabbing Burroughs in one of his books saying something along the lines of Burroughs sitting at a bar crying in his beer after selling the movie rights to "Naked Lunch" for the amount of what it cost to buy a case of beer... or something along those lines.
I think Bukowski just generally disliked the "Beat" poets because someone always tried to group him in with that whole crew and Bukowski believed himself to be very far off from that whole click.
