    About 15 years ago i was performing in NYC with a bunch of other people and Abbie
    Hoffman was there on LSD wearing an American Flag as a cape. The press wanted us
    all to stand togeather for a picture. i told Abbie i would not stand with him in
    the picture wearing that flag as a cape in honor of all the Vietnam Veterans who
    had fought and died in Vietnam "behind" that flag. He took off the flag. The
    picture got taken. cheers, country joe mcdonald
