    In 1967 the Hoffman's did have some dealings with Mayor Lindsay et al. Abbie
    tried to represent the lower east side hippies to the Mayor's office. It was
    a brief relationship. What came out of it? I remember the city paid for a
    pamphlet that Abbie wrote called "Fuck The System." (Ah, what a time.) It was
    aimed at teaching young people to survive on the street. It was in some way a
    modest forerunner to Abbie's "Steal This Book."
