FROM A VETERAN OF THE LONG LINES TO THE LOOS ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT

Subject: Isle of wight, fart articles

Hi Al,

I particularly enjoyed Gloria Klein's series on flatulence.

Your article on the Isle of Wight brought back some fine memories...I was one of those unworthy hippies who spent the weekend in the press enclosure. After a summer or bumming around England, sleeping in the back of a Fiat 500, I had ridden down to Portsmouth on the train with a reporter for the Montreal Gazette, who suggested that I try for a press pass by claiming to be his photographer. We showed up for the Dylan non-interview in Ryde, and surprisingly the ploy worked.

Later, when the crowd got out of hand they revoked my press pass temporarily, but I sought out Albert Grossman, who was the brother of a close family friend, and he grudgingly got it back for me.

For years I had the program, but lost it in one of my relocations. I still have a couple faded slides of the long lines to those inadequate loos you spoke of. What I really wish I could find was a photo I took from just off the front of the stage of Marsha Hunt's meaty black legs and thighs (shot up from underneath).

Another memory -- sleeping out in the field in a shelter made of hay bales and a tarp, sharing the space with some Scottish stoners, and the tarp catching fire.

Oh, the good old days...  ##

Dear Al - I have just been reading your story about Murray the K. Has anyone ever written his lifestory? If not, I might be interested.You obviously knew him well.Maybe you could do it yourself. I think it would make great reading.

You can mail me. All the best. Joyce Somerville. ##

ANOTHER RESPONSE TO DARLENE FIFE'S ACCUSATION OF BIGOTRY (SEE COLUMN SIXTY-EIGHT)

Subject: finally we agree

dear al; as you know that no matter what our disagreements that my  ultra left anti vietnam war creds are pretty good. (we the people of the U.S.....hereby empower you to bring back the body of ....etc etc........),"  i first met and photographed Darlene in D.C. in 65  she was a great [anti war crusader] and it would give me great pleasure to photograph her in Mecca while she was wearing a miniskirt and driving down main street with her married boyfriend or female lover.  except we would all be stoned unto death (a pecularly islamic punishment). I spent fourteen days in a dungeon in El Jadida, maroc...sometimes hanging from a pole naked except for the starter cables running from my ears to the hand crank generator attached to the arab prick who didn't like a jew with a bit a hash in his pocket..... Great role models, Darlene. My great uncle Moishe and his wife and kids were slaughtered in hebron in 1928. There was no israel then. They were simple farmers who purchased the land from some Palestinians who themselves were killed for selling their property to "joods". oh Al, I could go on and give you a fair to middlin' article ...we could talk about Kosovo where a tiny minority islamic population was inflated by their nazi allies in ww2 and now kill serbs, justifying their atrocities with the logic that comes from the belief that because they are muslims they have "omroo'", The Right to wage "jihad". As a matter of fact, darlene, name any country in the world where there is a muslim majority who allow their neighbors full freedom of belief. Or their own women, for that matter. go to southern Sudan, Darlene and live with the Christian and animist African people. Try Indonesia, Darlene. East Timor, Darlene. Did you go there and fight the Islamic muderers? Nigeria, head for Nigeria, Darlene, or go to the Emirates and speak to the Goanese women held as slaves. Cechnya. The Philipines,  Iran...Muslims kill, Darlene. islam is religious fascism...and you are a counter revolutionary.
