Once upon a time in my revolutionary days i was with Underground Press Syndicate a counter culture commune that operated a news service for the underground press.This was in NYC and it was a nerve center for Yippies led by Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin and Tom Hayden who alter married Jane Fonda and indeed that motley crew rented a space in our loft on E 17th st .Black Panthers and Beat poets and Dylanologists and other revolutionaries were part of the scene and here i was 16 in the middle. We published the first copies of Steal This Book by Abbie Hoffman and it was a group effort and i wrote at least three pages possibly more. I definitely wrote about hitching on airplanes out of an incident i personally experienced .I believe i wrote the part about panhandling also.When i met Keith Daniel this morning he asked me to autograph a copy of the book and i gladly did.
