The Fifth Estate, one of the oldest and most radical underground newspapers in America, is pulling up its roots in Detroit and moving to the Pumpkin Hollow commune outside Nashville, Tenn., the Detroit Free Press reports. "Of the hundreds of underground papers that arose across the United States in the 1960s, the Fifth Estate is the oldest survivor," the daily reports. The 37-year-old anarchist paper, which has an international readership, once presented the severed head of a pig to the Wayne State University board of governors and published a picture of the event with the headline "Pig's Head Meets Head Pigs."
