"Krassner is absolutely compelling.

About Paul Krassner

Krassner published The Realist from 1958-2001, but when People magazine called him "Father of the underground press," he immediately demanded a paternity test. His style of personal journalism constantly blurs the line between observer and participant. Krassner currently writes for High Times, the porn industry's Adult Video News, and blogs for Huffington Post. Arianna Huffington is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, a nationally syndicated columnist, and author of twelve books. The Huffington Post is one of the most widely-read, linked to, and frequently-cited media brands on the Internet. In 2006, she was named to the Time 100, Time Magazine's list of the world's 100 most influential people.show more
