What's your price?
I have been thinking a lot about Abbie Hoffman of late. We don't have anyone like him around anymore and it is too bad for us. We could use him. Abbie's FBI file was over 13,000 pages long. Abbie did it all, he was a freelance writer for Crawdaddy while on the lam, tried to fight the despoliation of the Saint Laurence River under a pseudonym. Never stopped fighting for what he believed in. Hear that, Al Franken?
Ken Seals took a wonderful picture of Abbie in the sixties while he was working as a Kansas photojournalist but won't let me publish it, no matter how hard I beg.
This is a pretty cool clip. Says it all.
