Leary Smear FeedBack

Dear Jeremy Bridges, thanks for doing the dirty job of history
Interesting how history turned Reagan, who run the country into a
ditch and had worth scandals than Clinton could ever dream of -- how
Reagan now is the greatest Prez. we ever had. On the other hand Leary
who while risking his own comfy professorial life in effect probably
saved thousands of young men from death in Vietnam by making them
think and leave for Canada or Europe.
After the CIA decided not to kill him -- because of the
unpleasantries of martyrdom I wasn't shocked that they tried to turn
him into a snitch. When that happened my life's experiences told me
that someone exiled for about two years then jailed for an other 4 or
5(?) isn't exactly well informed about current illegal business going
on -- in fact often you're happy to get last month newspaper. And for
the ever doubtful there is a book by John Bryan that gives you all
the nasty details about Timothy's final escape, and he -- as Tim told
me -- is a Leary-hater -- and still he could not find anybody who
went to jail... What really bothers me are sentences like: " I
realize, that in today's counterculture, we do not have the huge mega-
stars (Like Abbie Hoffman) to help lead us." How about
super/giant/mega/giga-stars to try to begin to start to help to lead
us, lead us... oh my god we are without leadership... call the
Germans...maybe they still have some cheap left-over-leaders.....
O! the silliness -- why wasn't Tim behind George Bush the elder if he
was such a Bush fan? So -- thank you for the dirty job of setting
history straight which otherwise I might have felt to do.

Tim Leary was only one of my best friends I ever had! This Leary-as-
Devil theorist was obviously never one of Tim's friends and never
really even knew him except for the various warped media images he
has obviously been very biased by. Tim was not only one of my best
friends but also one of my only friends. I know he never did anything
he didn't have a right to do to me. he was, and to me he still is, a
bodhisattva! in fact we both are still bodhisattvas of the L.S.D.-
25/timetravel neurochemistry TRUTH, to me.
Unlike anyone else he got me to look at my brain and IQ totally
seriously and faithfully in myself. without him i do not believe i
could dream of life with meaning and/or "the beyond"...he helped me
weaken my death instinct of my suicidal behaviours...I swear, I might
not still be alive if it weren't for him!
I also noticed the Leary-as-Devil theorist didn't even mention Harry
Browne, the libertarian candidate for President as if Nader were the
only real hippie or drugee or "lefto" option.
Complete inattention to detail seems to be the universal
characteristic or trait of such "Leary-bashers"! to me they are not
scientists but right or left wing nutso politicians or worse and not
one of them enough of a scientist to be able to judge his scientific
value or worth!
