Thread Name: Utah Phillips' FBI File
Subject: RE: BS: Utah Phillips' FBI File
I was honored back about 1969 to be able to see my Red Squad File as collected by the Chicago Police Department through the Freedom Of Info. Act. It was all of ten pages long, at most, and contained things like my attending a food collecting rally in Bughouse Square to feed poor people.

Give me a break.

As Lee Hayes said about HUAC going after him, "If it wasn't for the honor of it, I would rather not've been blacklisted!"
