Not the compromised second draft.

Ever watch The Big Lebowski and wonder about The Dude's "Port Huron Statement" comment? No, it's not some famous pivotal Great Lakes environmental study...
Dude: Well, uh. . . Not much to tell. I was, uh, one of the authors of the Port Huron Statement. The original Port Huron Statement.
Maude: Uh-huh.
Dude: Not the compromised second draft. And then I, uh... you ever hear of the Seattle Seven?
Maude: Mmm.
Dude: That was me, and, um, six other guys...
Note that Jeff Dowd, the inspiration for the character of "The Dude," actually was one of the Seattle Seven.
