"Ian Rankin once explained to an interviewer (the head of the Indian Communist Party!) that crime fiction is a way of talking about social inequality. Ron Jacobs applies that same maxim to the Sixties... in his wonderfully noir trilogy of those exhilarating and troubled times. And what Rankin does for Edinburgh, Jacobs amply illuminates for the Movement. Much much more than ripping yarns (though they are that too), from a master who's been there, done that, and lived to tell a tale or two."

Could the Grateful Dead prevent an asymmetric national security disaster?

I'm trying to put this information in the hands of Martin Scorsese. He's in the process of creating a GD documentary. I think he'd be intrigued by the concept of a "dominipede" (multiple, simultaneous human stampedes).
