A letter in Playboy magazine

Here is a nice goodie, courtesy of Jesse Walker: A letter to the Playboy Advisor asking about the Illuminati, and the magazine's reply. You can read it here.

Mr. Walker explains that the letter purporting to be from a reader was cooked up by Robert Anton Wilson, an editor at "Playboy" at the time, possibly in collaboration with Kerry Thornley and also includes a reply written by RAW.

"A portion of this appeared in Illuminatus!, but not all of it. From the April 1969 issue," Walker says.

Yep! See Illuminatus!, p.20, omnibus ed., "Illuminati Project: Memo #4", and p.43, and what happened to "R.S." of Kansas City after he wrote the letter to Playboy.

Things, at that point, had been coming to a head...slowly.

Thanks to Jesse for pointing this one out!

I'm not too sure about this. Playboy probably has a lot more to do with breast augmentation sydney than any secret society.
