Krassner was an old-line counterculture figure whose political activism made a large impact on the 1960s.
The Youth International Party, which became more widely known as the Yippies, ran a pig for president and threw dollar bills on the New York Stock Exchange floor, to name two political pranks.
Krassner was a free speech advocate and later a widely known author who appeared at many political and entertainment events, lending the voice of experience to the Diy movement.
Sorry to hear this. One of a kind, truly.
