Chicago Trial Testimony
If you're like me (y'know, 47 feet tall w/ a penis like a pogo-stick), the Chicago '7' (or 8) trial is a very, very important event in the political history of this country. To be able to read Allen Ginsberg's verbatim testimony for it is an opportunity to see 2 cultures in conflict in a way rarely articulated so clearly. The 2 cultures being, of course, the "death festival" (the courts, the military, the government) & the "life festival" (the Yippies, the pacifists, me, probably YOU). The cover cartoon alone showing Ginsberg "OM"ing while floating on a cloud in lotus position in the courtroom is worth the 'price of admission' into this.
