Classic Psychedelic Story

There's a famous (in psychedelic circles) story about how pitcher Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter while tripping on LSD back in 1970. I always heard that Ellis later recanted the story, but now apparently he's owning up to the whole thing, and there's a lovely article in the Dallas Observer all about Ellis, his colorful career, and his subsequent reinvention as a prison drug counselor and all-around nice guy. Nice to see at least one story confirmed at the source!
