The Farm

I'd known for years about The Farm, the band of San Francisco hippies who traveled cross-country by converted school bus until deciding to settle in rural Tennessee.  I was thrilled to get the chance to visit them and see how well they had kept to their ideals. They represented a strain of American communalism that is now, alas, all but dead.

The Memphis Blues, again

One of the most enjoyable reporting trips I ever took -- to Memphis, Tenn., to write about the revival of Beale Street.

What sounds!
