I saw a video online of Ed Sanders, Jack Kerouac and Lewis Yablonsky discussing the political moment happening in 1968 with William F. Buckley on Firing Line and I asked Ed Sanders if he still stands by the visions of love & light that he talked about in that interview. I really hoped he would say that even in the dire circumstances we find ourselves in now he still believes. His gracious response is included in issue #251.
