A long over-due historical document. Its better after reading "The Electric Kool-aid Acid Test",.. or if you were actually trying to show up for that era. You can see the brightly promised future falling apart ,. when they just left (the LSD mental breakdown casualty) Babs behind, in the middle of Texas(!),.. and just 'partied on'. The rich writer is paying for everything,
and so its ".. move down, clean cups!". With some 'lets-frek-out-the-strait-people' theatricks thrown in for color.
