Wood chopping "accident"

Is it just me or does anyone else think the whole wood chopping accident story is a little fishy? I mean, what kind of parents send a 4 year old out with his 9 year old brother to chop wood? At the very least this is serious parental neglect and at worst I think this story was concocted to cover up something else. Tiff simply went along with it because he was a boy himself and may have been threatened with severe punishment if he didn't; as the years went by, he probably started believing it as well. At any rate, what really happened will probably remain lost to history because there seems to be precious little available on this subject. It seems strange to me that of all the volumes written about Jerry (and I've read quite a few of them), none of his biographers have ever so much as questioned this extremely dubious story. Other than that, happy birthday Jerry! Truly one of the greatest and most influential American musicians of all time.

whats up?

This maybe out of the topic a little but here goes- does anyone out there in Deadland know what is up with the Pure Jerry releases/archives/website, etc-it seems like everything has stopped again after a resurgence of activity. I would love to see some more live releases including a video of the Warfield performances with David Grisman. A box of live shows from various eras/incarnations would be a blast. Etc,Etc.

jer's kid

This from the professor:

It's a bit vague, but it seems like Jerry's talking here about an acid trip. One source of this type of interview could be the Rolling Stone compiled interviews book, "Garcia". Another source is David Dodd's edited compilation of articles "The Grateful Dead Reader". A third source could be David Gans' "Conversations with the Dead". Good luck and happy hunting!

Quote HELP

I was listing to Tales From The Golden Age yesterday and there was a guy who just started rattling off quotes from Jerry. One was about change, the other was about being an earthling and he said they were all from one interview. Do any of you know where this interview or these quotes can be found? What is the best source of his interviews?
