P.O.W.


The P.O.W. Comminiqué

[In September 1970 Timothy Leary escaped from the California Men’s Colony, a state prison in San Luis Obispo, California, with the assistance of the Weather Underground, a clandestine revolutionary organization. He had been incarcerated since February 1970 for a marijuana possession conviction. This communiqué was released to the underground press shortly after his escape.]

The following statement was written in the P.O.W. camp and carried over the wall (in full sight of two gun trucks). I offer loving gratitude to my sisters and brothers in the Weather Underground who designed and executed the liberation. Rosemary and I are now with the Underground and we’ll continue to stay high and wage the revolutionary war.

Blood Feud in Gujarat

Nothing stokes the ratings like a good blood feud, and the Muslims and Hindus of South Asia are at the center of one of the better.

The whole thing makes the Hatfields and McCoys look like bubblegummers, and the past 100 years has seen some of the best action.
