Personal Quote:

Trivia:

G. Gordon Liddy of Watergate fame was an assistant district attorney in the late 1960s and participated in a law enforcement raid on Leary's upstate compound. According to Liddy's autobiography 'Will' Leary greeted the police and Liddy wearing only a shirt and no pants or underwear. Few drugs were found and nearly all charges against Leary were dismissed.
