Three Dharma Pals featured in Dead Documentary

Marin Independent Journal entertainment columnist of many years, Paul Liberatore, yesterday reviewed a new documentary on the Grateful Dead called Long Strange Trip. Katrinka read it and pointed out that it mentions Dennis McNally (see photo), their publicist, and Barbara "Brigid" Meier who was a high school sweetheart and later fiance of Garcia. They both have SFZC creds and have been cuke contributors. Brigid was a Suzuki then a Trungpa student. They come up toward the end of the review. Steve Silberman is not mentioned in the review but thanks Brigid for letting me know he "figures highly in the film, is also a Zen practitioner and that he was at Naropa as Allen Ginsberg's assistant one summer."
