Ken from Hyde Park:
Fancier billboards of the future will overlay whatever part of the visual field {they feel like}/{you can't block}. It is not the least bit paranoid to note that it shouldn't be too hard to guess where you're looking at any given moment, for example the systems your car will use to determine you've fallen asleep (or had a heart attack) behind the wheel and it's time for it to start driving.

I wonder how they'll diagnose paranoia in the future…`ideas of reference' and voices everywhere will just be 'reality'.

@MarkWilliams: Not too sure of where you are coming from, but you realize a lot more people in “rock and roll” have straight jobs because the music business sometimes—and most of the times—doesn’t pay the bills?

Heck, many active musicians and artists that still perform right now work for ad agencies and such as well.

Also in the 40's Lucien Carr wasn't questioned much about killing of David Kammerer, because of "gay panic." The story was presented that Kammerer made an unwanted pass at Carr, and was deemed to be a "honor killing." Pretty terrible.
  Wed. 8/30/17 11:04am Dean:

@BnowB: I can't find references to the law you describe, but nowadays the California Constitution prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in certain circumstances. A state or local law prohibiting the sale of alcohol on that basis would be such a circumstance.

@BnowB: Here's something funny: the first part of the passage of the book linked from the article (at the quote "persons of known homosexual tendencies") identifies an Oakland bar, The First and Last Chance Saloon. It is a funky shack in Jack London Square on the Oakland waterfront, but there is now an outpost at the Oakland Int'l Airport. Can't get more mainstream than that!
