gauging Tom Wolfe’s legacy

11,600 google news results for Tom Wolfe and “Kool Aid”.  248,000 for Tom Wolfe and “Right Stuff”.  12,900 for Tom Wolfe and “Radical Chic”.

Strangely, “Acid Test” brings in 11,300.

I do see obituaries whose headline notes him as the author of “Electric Kool Aid Acid Test”, though — as you would expect from the search results here, the headlines highlighting “Right Stuff” are picked up by more sources.
