Peace, Drugs, Earth Day, And Murder — A Look Back At Philadelphia’s Ira Einhorn

 Thom Nickels offers a good piece on Ira Einhorn, a 1960s counterculture guru-turned murderer, at Broad & Liberty, where I’m also a contributor.

In his time, Einhorn was often covered by Philadelphia newspapers and TV and radio stations, with lavish profiles and goofy quotes from him on events of the day. 

He was a kook and a fraud, and as it was later discovered, he was also a murderer.
