    I've got a copy of the Best of Abbie Hoffman. Give me the quote off-line and
    I'll try and locate it for you.
    When I was researching my bio of Abbie, I made it a point to check whatever
    library I was in to see if any of his books were there. They were often in the
    card catalogue but rarely on the shelves. I asked the head librarian at the
    Brooklyn Public Library about the missing books and he laughed and said readers
    took Abbie's title literally. They had to stop ordering them.
