Tuesday fun link: that time Karl Hess and Robert Anton Wilson got high onstage at a Libertarian Party convention and talked for two and a half hours.

The setting is Seattle in 1987. Topics covered include government informants, running guns to Cuba, the surveillance arm of Playboy magazine, phone phreaking, Iran-contra, Ayn Rand, Groucho Marx, intellectual property, the New Age movement, barbecue potato chips, ghostwriting for a mafioso, and Barry Goldwater's tolerant thoughts about marijuana, among many other subjects.
