An olde book review reveals a hidden truth, the type of misprint that could make copy editors or even a historian gnash their teeth or snigger in disgust:
The Blacklisted Journalist publishes a book review by Joyce Metzger of "A Long Strange Trip", prepared by Dennis McNally.
All of which is pretty colorful reading. Until I hit the klinker, a direct quote from the book:
"On May 15th, police and CHP entered the People’s Park as, Dennis wrote, “6000 Berkeleyites marched down Telegraph Hill. The next day, the police trapped 3000 and strafed them with tear gas from helicopters.”
Telegraph Hill is in Boston. He meant Telegraph Avenue, which is in Berkeley. A small mistake that can mean utter unfamiliarity with the scene, certainly in terms of geography.
And here, too, is Peter Coyote at the top of the mast. Back in the day, I thought he looked silly wearing a vest shirtless, chokeband beads, buckskin colored hiphuggers, black cowboy hat, and that stupid little twirly feather ear ring. He wasn't Peter Coyote, then, but he was becoming Peter Coyote. I guess they all kind of clump together.
