MOre into acid rock.....drugs...more drugs.....laid back....


tune in...turn on....drop out....


I didn't know too many hippies...the guy across the hall in the dorms went 'hippie' and anti-war....spent too many hours at night smoking pot and listening to radical radio at 2am in the morning...flunked out....moved to Canada to avoid the draft...... wound up in Greenwich Village in NYC years later......


Didn't bother me....seemed rather silly.....and I wasn't going to do drugs....I had a career to build...


and the guy across the hall showed me everything that was wrong with the hippie movement......by example....

after I graduated...the hippie movement was fading fast.....once the war ended...it sort of just ran out of steam...nothing to protest about.... there were a few hippies in Chicago but not many.....if you wanted to be a real hippie you had to be in CAlifornia..
