Weekend reading

Owsley Stanley, the mad scientist and overall polymath who crafted and supplied LSD to many rock acts of the 1960s - including John Lennon - and thereby played a prominent role in shaping that era's drug-addled counter-culture, died last weekend in a car accident.

In 2007, Rolling Stone profiled Stanley as part of its commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love. You can read the lengthy profile here.
