From An Ancient Blogger

A flash of insight identified this item in a pile of newspaper clippings in my father's correspondence & detritus of the ages. This was in amongst a pile of about now 2 inches of miscellaneous clippings that keep company with everything from Tiny Tim, Jacqueline Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, & thousands of other topics. In it's own way the pile is a blog of the 40's thru the 80's . This is from the LA Free Press - December 2, 1966.  I know that there is at least another 100 pounds of it still in the basement. He did have several clippings about the book, movie & actresses in the movie The Exorcist.
I wonder why he saved this one which is not about the book?

In case you can't blow it up or would like to know what the labels on the demons are they are:
  • Anarchy
  • Questioning of Authority
  • Doubt of Dogma
  • The shield on the cop says "Status Quo"
And the Angel has the sword of ORDER in his hand.

Quite a find ... let me know if you need a home for it .   Picture reminds me of the Rodney King Beating.   I remember picking up copies of of the LA Free Press along the Sunset Strip in the '60s ... didnt know the old man was scanning it also.

A funny poem from the same stack .
Rodney King came along a lot later, eh ? This was the heart of the times of civil disobedience & the flower children, when the cops were called pigs & tried to suppress demonstrations.  Remember Kent State ! (O, where is our fist in the air emotey when we need it!) I was in Japan having a good time with the natives there.

Yeah you must have missed the whole beat of the 60's ... the whole Sunset Strip scene ... then Height Ashbury in SF ... dropping acid along the California coast ...

would you have been a conservitive back then ... i don't remember you as a conservitive when you were sitting around the famous Common Logic Table in Project 2 ... now why was it that you guys didn't get colds?

And then there is this hilarious article on AUTO SUCK also in the LA Free Press.

I didn't miss the 60's - Project 2 didn't happen until the 70's. There was enough left over to play with it. Charlene & I did host some insurgents from other parts of the country for the Mayday demonstration at the Washington Monument before I came to S.F. .  It took a long while to shake my Utopian core beliefs & finally come to my senses ! I recommend it !
