The History of the Psychedelic Movement is a cartoon and coloring book published in 1967 by Timothy Leary, Art Kleps, and friends at their infamous Milbrook, New York estate. A rare copy is currently up for auction on eBay with a BuyItNow price of $750. From the item description:
Historylearycolorrrr I purchased this from an officer that worked in the Poughkeepsie Township police department. He obtained it from the Dutchess county S.O. before they burned several hundred copies that had been confiscated from the Millbrook Estate raid.

Very few copies of this book are in existance. Art Kleps himself didn't have a clean copy. I will also include and email of a correspondence between the cop and Art Kleps in 1996. Kleps also stated that the remainder of the inventory was lost in Vermont.

Ten weeks after her 18th birthday, Natalie Ciappa spent an evening with friends before returning to Massapequa and the safety of her bed.

The Plainedge High School senior even made curfew, which, in recognition of her recently conferred adulthood, had been moved back one hour, to 2:30 a.m.

At 9 a.m., in a room adjacent to her own, Natalie's parents woke to an alarm clock.

They had planned a family outing to Jones Beach to watch the Blue Angels in celebration of Memorial Day.

Those plans were shattered by an awful sound.

"It was like rasping, a hard rasping," Natalie's mother, Doreen, recalled Wednesday.

longest Walk 2: Thirty Years After Historic Cross-Country March, Thousands Walk From San Francisco to DC for Native American Rights

Thirty years ago, some 40,000 Native Americans and their supporters participated in a historic cross-country march called the Longest Walk to protest Congressional legislation that would have abrogated treaties protecting Native American Sovereignty. On Friday, thousands are expected to gather in Washington, DC after another five-month long journey across the country to draw attention to the state of the environment and press for the protection of sacred Native American sites. We speak with the co-founder of the American Indian Movement, Dennis Banks.

Thirty years after a historic cross-country march for Native American rights, thousands are gathering in Washington DC tomorrow after another historic march across the country. We"ll speak with the co-founder of the American Indian Movement, Dennis Banks. He began the walk in San Francisco five months ago and is arriving in the capital today.
