Volume #16, Issue #4 -- August 1989


Dear Readers,

After many hours of reading the editorial that makes up this issue, and many more hours of reading through that material that was submitted for this issue, I feel mud-caked, tired, spaced, and satisfied. Through the Woodstock recollections of others, I feel like I was there intsead of sitting at home at the impressionable age of 15, wishing I'd left one day before they closed the New York State Thruway. I even had tickets!

A woven tapestry has emerged from the Woodstock stories in this issue. There are parallel reminiscences as well as contradicting data. It goes to show that people see things differently, especially in retrospect. (Was it green acid or brown acid? Were there two deaths or four deaths? How many people actually made it to Woodstock? Was it day or night? Was it Saturday or Sunday? What planet are we on?)

Our sincerest thanks to all of the people who contributed to this issue. Due to space limitations, we couldn't use everything we wanted to. Please accept our apologies if your work does not appear. However, your efforts helped form the basis of this issue, and we thank you for that.

Enjoy the remaining days of summer. An don't forget to find an environmental cause and get involved today! Our earth needs us.

Peace, love, and Woodstock,
Toni A. Brown
