    As I've gotten older, I've had less and less tolerance for Haydukian mayhem.  Better to let the past be the past.

    •  So what about Abby Hoffman, & "Steal this Book"? (3+ / 0-)

      Probably the book most stolen from public libraries as well as a difficult book to find. (I bought a copy about 10 years ago.)

      In Hoffman's memory, I will occasionally take the junk mail sent from banks, strip it of all identifying information, & send it back to them in the enclosed postage prepaid envelopes. But I haven't acted on any of his other suggested acts of resistance against corporate Amerika. Not that I haven't thought about it.

      •  I do that if the junk mail is particularly bad (3+ / 0-)

        Otherwise I recycle it.

      •  I do that with Republican mailings (0+ / 0-)

        Based off suggestions from others here on DKos, sometimes I put that I'm donating $500 or more, but then conveniently leave out the check.  Costs them more time and effort to try and track me down, at which point I get to ask them if they understand their candidate's positions.

        Sometimes I find amusements where others find waste.

          Better than what George Bernard Shaw allegedly wrote to someone who harassed him:

          "Dear Sir:

          I have received your letter and am reading it in a small, private, enclosed room in my own home.  

          It is currently before me.  Soon it will be behind me....."
