- In his article “PKD, The Unicorn and Operation Mind Control” Adam Gorightly sets forth a theory that Ira Einhorn was framed for the murder of Holly Maddox because he was about to unveil some Tesla technology. This ties in to Philip Dick. (Einhorn-framing theories don’t wash with me, ’cause his girlfriend’s putrid corpse was right in his own bedroom, leaking fluids into the apartment below. Even the smelliest hippie on the planet – and Einhorn was a contender for that title – must have noticed the funny smell coming from the closet…)

- If you’ve never read up on the bizarre saga of “real-life Thelma and Lousie” Joyce Stevens and Rose Turford, do so. A real head-scratcher.
