IN A JAM: As a

IN A JAM: As a semi-member of the Phish cult, I'm quite disturbed at the news this morning that Phish bassist Mike Gordon has been arrested for child endangerment, after an incident in which he "accompanied" a 9-year-old girl into a boathouse, and allegedly took "art photos" of her, after a concert by The Dead at Long Island's Jones beach theater. (Gordon does not face any type of sex rap, at least not at this point).
Just Gordon's luck, the girl turned out to be the daughter of some Hell's Angels members who, according to the Daily News account, put the beatdown on Gordon before police arrived- Hell's Angels beating up hippies at Dead shows, of course, being a tradition nearly as old as time itself.
In the meantime, now the counterculture has some idea of how sports fans feel about Kobe...
