I really did stop being a hippy before the word was part of the common vocabulary! I was out of there by the end of 1965. But, that's because I am slightly older than the people interviewed.

It does bring back memories.

What a great topic for Studs Terkel to do... the musings & "how are things now versus then" explorations of former hippies.

Ah yes, the good old days... Interesing that all the reported interviewees were women. Wonder if they could find no surviving male former hippies around St. Pete? Also, interesting but not surprising that they all report still being involved in or concerned with some social or environmental cause.

Yeah, once you've seen, it's a sacrilege to choose blindness. All those former hippies... imagine the tales to tell, the lives explored, the lost, the won...
