Krist joins The SpitFire tour

When I was initially approached about the Spitfire Tour, the first thing that came into my thoughts was when Abbey Hoffman and Hunter S. Thompson came to speak in Seattle in the early 80’s. At the time I was in Aberdeen and couldn’t make it to the UW. I did read about it though in the Rocket. It was a boisterous political forum featuring leaders of the counterculture. If Spitfire could be anything like that, it sounded like it was worth the shot.”
