JUST OPENED ALTERNET and among the dirty dozen or so stories—including those on the White House, white na­tion­al­ists and Stormy Davis—there was this splash of color with mul­tiple im­ages of Jimi Hen­drix cir­cling the Mad Hatter! It ac­com­pa­nied an ar­ticle ti­tled How LSD Makes Music Pro­foundly Awe­some” about re­searchers learning more about how the pow­erful psy­che­delic LSD af­fects the brain.
