I wonder if Mr. Hinkle will talk about all of the acid being taken at Stanford during that period when the Psych. dept. was just stoned out of its mind.
All of the members lived there for quite a while in Palo Alto and quite a few writers emerged from that scene......both good, okay and bad.......Neil Cassady and Alan Ginsburg were regulars as well as a
lot of the fun group of the day.
I would bet they would all love to see the people attending the Menlo Park library. Even Woolf's ELECTRIC KOOL AID ACID TEST did not include some of the goings on in his rather good book.
