    This is a wild and crazy ride, as you might expect from Krassner Somehow, I ve managed either never to read him or not to remember that I ve read him, so I came in pretty fresh His long essay on the Patty Hearst trial points up amazing incongruities between what was believed and what was ignored, what was punished and what was overlooked, etc At times, it seems completely implausible however, the similar essay on Dan White s murders of Moscone and Milk covers ground I know much better, and a This is a wild and crazy ride, as you might expect from Krassner Somehow, I ve managed either never to read him or not to remember that I ve read him, so I came in pretty fresh His long essay on the Patty Hearst trial points up amazing incongruities between what was believed and what was ignored, what was punished and what was overlooked, etc At times, it seems completely implausible however, the similar essay on Dan White s murders of Moscone and Milk covers ground I know much better, and all his facts seem to be right Krassner is funny, biting, and does not tolerate fools well all qualities I appreciate Every volume in this series has an interview with editor Terry Bisson, and this one is delightful

    Another one from the PM Press Outspoken Authors series that also serves as my introduction to Paul Krassner, whose name I ve seen dropped in various 60s counterculture contexts, but who I knew very little about His main line is paranoid sociopolitical satire, which is worth keeping in mind as you read this book about his experience covering the trials of Patty Hearst and Dan White the guy who killed Harvey Milk and George Moscone and whose lawyer invented the Twinkie Defense , though Krassner Another one from the PM Press Outspoken Authors series that also serves as my introduction to Paul Krassner, whose name I ve seen dropped in various 60s counterculture contexts, but who I knew very little about His main line is paranoid sociopolitical satire, which is worth keeping in mind as you read this book about his experience covering the trials of Patty Hearst and Dan White the guy who killed Harvey Milk and George Moscone and whose lawyer invented the Twinkie Defense , though Krassner actually coined the term His tales from the trials are not so much meant to be objective journalism, but rather a satirical take on what both trials represented to the counterculture at the time, to include the various conspiracy theories that abounded regarding the CIA, FBI, and even Jim Jones It s an interesting, short chronicle of two of the stranger tales of the 1970s There s also an interview, and a short piece about Michelle Shocked being ostracized from the LGBT activist community You may not get much objective truth from this, but then it s been said that satire gets closer to the truth than any official version

    Two very good and funny looks at major trials in the seventies It was witty, sometimes vulgar and always very smart I enjoyed these two long essays on the Patty Hearst Trial and the Dan White, Twinkie Defense, trial

    Three stars because I think there would be a range of stars Some people would love it, and others might be hostile to some of the contents There is information about the Kidnapping that had not been released to the public immediately I was in San Francisco during the Hearst kidnapping, and the People s Temple s stay in San Francisco, but not knowing much about it before the ending in Guyana, and the news of the Twinkie Murders was announced at my workplace.All this stuff was coming too fast Three stars because I think there would be a range of stars Some people would love it, and others might be hostile to some of the contents There is information about the Kidnapping that had not been released to the public immediately I was in San Francisco during the Hearst kidnapping, and the People s Temple s stay in San Francisco, but not knowing much about it before the ending in Guyana, and the news of the Twinkie Murders was announced at my workplace.All this stuff was coming too fast, didn t come too close to me, but it seemed that too many bad things were happening

    Very entertaining, but on information rich material like this Krassner s Realist conflation of satire with publishing something very likely to be true along with, probably, his getting facts wrong fails a little As in, I can t find any evidence that Fred Hampton s autopsy showed tranquilizers I d believe it, but all evidence I ve found points to him being killed in te usual jail of cop gunfire Also couldn t find evidence the Partnership for a Drug Free America had alcohol and tobacco fund Very entertaining, but on information rich material like this Krassner s Realist conflation of satire with publishing something very likely to be true along with, probably, his getting facts wrong fails a little As in, I can t find any evidence that Fred Hampton s autopsy showed tranquilizers I d believe it, but all evidence I ve found points to him being killed in te usual jail of cop gunfire Also couldn t find evidence the Partnership for a Drug Free America had alcohol and tobacco funding, which I d also believe I feel like he might have been thinking of some other anti drug organization, since enough were funded with that kind of dirty money But knowing he was getting stuff like that wrong brought the facts of the rest of the book into question

    Funny, although sadly true, accounts of how our court system malfunctions, as viewed through two famous court cases he covered.
