I went to college during the Ronald Regan Conservative 80's.

I found a great way to get invited to parties was to be a designated driver.

I met people listening to "Hippie" rock music from the 70's. They tripped on Acid, mushrooms, smoked pot, drank to excess, engaged in casual sexual encounters with great frequency, wore strange clothing...and aquired degrees.

From what I recall they majored in teaching, business and engineering.

These are your children's teachers and community leaders.

Dirty "Hippies" wearing Izod but still...drugs, sex, rock music? Check, check, check.

There's a time and a place for everything...your early 20's.


"Twenty-five years ago they spoke out and they broke out
Of recession and oppression and together they toked
And they folked out with guitars around a bonfire
Just singin' and clappin' man what the hell happened
Then some were spellbound some were hellbound
Some they fell down and some got back up and
Fought back 'gainst the melt down
And their kids were hippie chicks all hypocrites
Because fashion is smashin' the true meaning of it"
