that it would stand by its decision to not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton after examining additional emails related to the Democratic candidate’s use of a private email server In a note to congressional committee chairs Comey said the FBI had not changed its “conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton” providing another twist in the 2016 election Here is what to know about the FBI’s decision What were the new emails The FBI reviewed emails found on a device belonging to Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband the former congressman Anthony Weiner Weiner is under investigation for allegedly sending sexually explicit text messages to a minor The FBI said the newly discovered emails were pertinent to its investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server which the bureau completed in July What was the reaction to Comey’s October announcement Comey’s late October note to a congressional chairman announcing that the newly-discovered emails warranted investigation set off a torrent of accusations and proved to be extremely controversial among Democrats Republicans and government officials The FBI usually does not comment on ongoing investigations especially when one involves a major-party candidate for president so close to an election Comey’s announcement which contained little detail was criticized by several current and former Justice Department officials who said he broke with department protocol President Obama criticized the director for deviating from the “norm” by releasing the letter What was the FBI’s July decision Comey in July said that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring a criminal case against Clinton for using a private email server Although he criticized her handling of her emails Comey said the FBI found “no intentional misconduct” What was the reaction from Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump Trump was gleeful over the news pivoting from constant criticism of the FBI to praising the bureau for reopening the investigation "I have great respect for the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made" he said at a campaign rally in Manchester New Hampshire Clinton said that Comey should release the information he had "We are 11 days out from perhaps the most important national election in our lifetimes Voting is already underway in our country" she said "So the American people deserve to get the full and complete facts immediately” Did the FBI announcement affect polling After Comey’s announcement races in six battleground states swung in favor of Trump according to at least one measure Nationally however Clinton has maintained her lead as voters see her as the most qualified candidate According to the final national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted after Comey’s announcement Clinton holds a four-point lead over Trump with 44% support from likely voters in a four-way matchup while Trump receives 40% Write to Mahita Gajanan at [email protected] LIFE’s new special edition celebrating 50 years of the Grateful Dead Sally Mann Romano tells of her encounters with the band Here is an extended version of that essay: In 1968 after several glitter-smeared years in Hollywood pursuing a serious dramatic career in elite works like Where the Girls Are and Love on Haight Street with all the ardor I could muster while staying out all night on the Sunset Strip simultaneously exhilarated and exhausted by the demands of serial social alliances so to speak with Frank Zappa Phil Spector John Mayall and other similarly irresistible musicians with similarly modest egos I was persuaded to head north to San Francisco I landed at Tiffany Mansion at 2400 Fulton Street the new-ish residence of my former short-term LA lover and permanent ace boon companion Paul Kantner Jefferson Airplanes kamikaze rhythm guitarist Before long as such things were wont to go in the overripe afterglow of San Franciscos Summer of Love Paul introduced me to Spencer Dryden the Airplanes celluloid-ready drummer After one afternoon with Spencer exchanging commodities of approximate commensurate value in keeping with my history of protracted deliberation concerning affairs of the heart I was a goner Immediate mutual attraction notwithstanding the course of true love never did run smooth at least in my case and before I could seal the deal with Spencer I faced the daunting challenge of sweeping up the sticky-sweet residue left behind in his heart by my predecessor the formidable Grace Slickan undertaking made appreciably easier by Graces waning interest in Spencer and growing interest in Paul Timing is everything and for once mine was fortuitous Along with the rest of the band we managed to spend almost the entirety of 1969 on the road together without killing (or impaling) each other staggering from airport to godforsaken airport from gig to gigtraveling to Honolulu Chicago Los Angeles Boston New York City and many more prosaic stops in betweenplaying anywhere the rock-and-roll rabble could be counted on to congregate in mass quantities in those halcyon days Before the bone-numbing sameness of Midwestern terminals with their revolving day-old hot dogs and the maddeningly ubiquitous stupefyingly unoriginal commentary of "Is that a boy or a girl" had combined to diminish my enthusiasm for nonstop touring I was thrilled to be on the road with the Airplane I was particularly excited about the Airplanes gig in Houston my hometown where the band was booked for a huge show at the Sam Houston Coliseum on October 5 1969 with Hot Tuna Poco The Byrds and the Grateful Dead (with Ken Kesey on harmonica in case the line-up wasnt already radioactive enough) It would not be an overstatement to say that on the whole Houstons municipal authorities were not overly avid about the invasion of their God-fearing burg by a passel of unrepentant guitar-slinging vipers and their gaudy camp followers with too much face paint and too few morals all of whom were hell bent on pushing their loathsome acid rock on Houstons tender innocents Every police officer in Houston not working a funeral procession had evidently been called out for the show and they were in no way reticent about making their beefy presence felt preening in front of the stage and hanging from the rafters in full gold-braid regalia Not to be outdone the Houston Fire Department was onstage in force manning the breaker boxes and loaded for bear fully prepared if not eager to shut the show down at the slightest provocation (With my uncle being Houstons former Fire Commissioner and a current city councilman I took the Fire Departments ominous presence as a personal slight) According to the antiquated Coliseums equally antiquated Fire Code the assigned-seating maximum-capacity crowd of excitable fans was not permitted to dance stand in the aisles or even toss off a half-baked upper-body shimmy to "Somebody to Love" in front of their seatsall fiercely unwelcome restrictions that put quite a damper on the general joie de vivre of the Love-In And thus it was that the rebellion began to foment As far as Kantners volatile sensibilities were concerned blue uniforms were like a flaring red cape to a thrice-gored bull still smarting from the banderillas Very little in this world if anything pleased Paul more than pissing off the Powers That Beespecially in a hopelessly out-of-it hinterland (to his way of thinking) like Houston So naturally Paul exhorted his highly receptive audience to defy the Fire Marshals bull-horned orders in all their flaming stupidity rise up off their collective thang and dance dance dance to the thunderous music In row after row the revolutionaries-manqué exuberantly complieduntil that is there was no more music thunderous or otherwise Not surprisingly the HFD had pulled the plug with amazing alacrityfirst on Pauls microphone and then on the mainsand Paul once again found himself in the warm embrace of a local constabulary cheered on as a hero of the revolution by a howling crowd of thousands This entire psycho-trauma performance-drama ended with the Dead and the Airplane (those of us who were not in custody) right back at Houston International Airport somewhat sooner than reflected on our itineraries under explicit orders to get out of town before sundown When Spencer and I arrived at the airports main restaurant desperate to pass some time unaccosted before our flight things failed to improve The Grateful Dead including their jitter-buggy brown-eyed road manager and my lifetime crush Rock Scully their entire crew of ne plus ultra roadies and techniciansand of course Augustus Owsley Stanley III (“Owsley” underground chemist to the stars and pathologically obsessive sound engineer) whose job assignment on this trip was somewhat amorphous to say the leastwere already sprawled out at the largest table in the dining room in all their tie-dyed glory (courtesy of The Master Courtenay Pollock) silver aluminum Zero Halliburtons all in an understated anodized row For some months prior Owsley had been proselytizing to his acolytes and anyone else he could corner about some typically weird Planet Nine dietary theory of his that mandated frequent consumption of only the rarest red meat (and by "rarest" I mean that with a good vet the cow could have recovered) and in keeping with His Eminences nutritional guidelines each person at the Deads crowded table had ordered the most expensive steak on the menu with firm instructions to an already dubious waitress that each order must be served extremely rare or there would be hell to pay or not pay as the case might be Lo and behold like everything else that day the Deads food orders didnt turn out as planned (quelle surprise) and when Scully and Owsley objected vehemently to paying for their food due to its improper preparation the management felt just as strongly about summoning the police to see that they did While this highly energized brouhaha was playing out before an audience of slack-jawed diners Spencer and I were sitting at a nearby table by ourselves heads down and minding our own when out of the blue another HPD officer approached us (truly their numbers must have been legion) tapped me on the shoulder and told me in no uncertain terms to pull up the front of my dress cover the rest of myself and "start acting like a lady" As it turned out some patron had complained that my spectacularly beautiful Hollys Harp repurposed piano-shawl dress was too low-cut on the top and too high-cut on the bottom and what with murders and violence in Houston being so comparatively inconsequential the gendarmes thought it necessary to dial down the heat on my sartorial splendor for the public welfare This terrible horrible no good very bad day finally ended with the offending

a completely unique musical identity playing thousands of concerts over a 30-year period Though Garcia’s death in August 1995 effectively ended the band’s touring days the Dead’s music and cultural influence have continued to grow Digital copies of the band’s concerts continue to sell briskly via iTunes and fan sites while a Hollywood biopic about Garcia is in the works and a pair of Deadhead

RB/Redferns/Getty Images Dead to the Core The crux of the Grateful Dead’s musical identity was the band’s willingness to constantly experiment No song was ever played the same way twice and no two concerts are remotely alike This jam-band approach has been successfully co-opted by a number of contemporary groups like Phish and the Dave Matthews Band Paul Ryan—Michael Ochs Archive/Getty Images The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test The Dead gained its early audience by performing as the house band at the many LSD parties known as "acid tests" that were organized widely in the Bay Area in the mid-1960s The scene centered on the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets was later memorialized in a best-selling work by Tom Wolfe who stands with Garcia and Dead manager Rock Sculley in this 1966 photo Ted Streshinsky—Corbis The Music Never Stopped The free-flowing approach to music that the band perfected over three decades of playing together was possible because of the extraordinary abilities of the musicians Garcia partnered with After his death guitarist Bob Weir and bassist Phil Lesh formed a series of bands — the current incarnation is called Furthur — while drummers Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart (not visible in this photo) lead the group the Rhythm Devils In 1970 when this photo was taken the group included Ron "Pigpen" McKernan rear left who sang and played

the US; and the San Francisco Giants will give out Garcia bobble-head dolls at their game against the Chicago Cubs on Aug 9 the anniversary of his death Roger Ressmeyer—Corbis Spinach Jam A critical component of the band’s enduring popularity is the visceral connection Garcia et al established with the group’s fans known as Deadheads Unlike virtually any other act the Dead encouraged its audience to record its shows and did not object when digital copies of those recordings were made available on the Internet (as long as no one took a profit from the sale of the music) In their book Marketing Lessons from the Grateful Dead: What Every Business Can Learn from the Most Iconic Band in History authors Brian Halligan and David Meerman Scott relate that this unorthodox business model actually proved wildly successful By giving away its music the band brought in new fans and increased sales from concerts records and merchandise Ed Perlstein—Redferns/Getty Images Captain Trips For most of the band’s career Garcia and his fellow musicians did not live the glamorous life that one commonly associates with top rock acts Though money flowed in the band was terrible at managing itself or finding someone trustworthy to do it And in many ways Garcia was cool with that The Dead scene is more "inclusive than exclusive" he said in a 1967 interview It has more to do "with integrity .
