News is supposed to be objective, isn’t it? … But every drugs story is negative? … Same LSD story every time: “Young man on acid, thought he could fly, jumped out of a building. What a tragedy.” What a dick! Don’t go blaming acid on this guy. If he thought he could fly, why didn’t he take off from the ground first to check it out? … I’d like to see a positive LSD story. Would that be newsworthy? Just once? Hear what it’s all about?
“Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There’s no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we’re the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the weather.”
