RAW on Paul Krassner

"He Makes a Career Out of Being Offensive," Martin Wagner's latest discovery, is a 1965 piece in PHOTO magazine, Robert Anton Wilson's tribute to Paul Krassner and The Realist. 

"The editorial policy of The Realist is quite simple, according to Krassner: 'The things I print have one thing in common: they couldn’t be printed anywhere else.' In following this editorial line, Krassner has been almost super-humanly impartial."

Many examples are offered; Martin also links to the RAW articles in the Realist archive.

FWIW, another link: the profile from LIFE Magazine mentioned in Krassner's memoirs.

...and thanks for sharing, Tom.
