Who Was Timothy Leary?

Dear John,

Who was Timothy Leary?—Curious and Totally Not Trying to Get You to Do the Homework Assignment From My “History of the 20th Century” Class

Dear CTNTGYDHAFMH2CC,

As it happens, one of my online friends is ruby-throated, liberal hippie media mogul Brian Shields (see Do People Get Stoned at Work?). Mr. Shields (who also runs the mega-excellent site Today’s Cool News) does his media moguling for San Francisco’s venerable market lion KRON-TV. As coincidence would have it, Mr. Shields recently aired a piece about Mr. Leary on KRON! You can find that piece here: http://tinyurl.com/annhzh. (Side note: my very own mother used to party with Mr. Leary—who [in case you know almost nothing about the ’60’s] is famous for the counterculture phrase, “Turn on, tune in, drop out.”)
