  1. so many really cool things are labeled "hippie", Even the Left uses the term. Like it was a clown car at the circus. we failed by definition.
    The Underground went under ground. The media just didn't get it and now too many of us became our parents. and the dire irony is that for a lot of us, our parents were hippies. what a damnable mess. and we don't have dick nixon to kick around anymore. and ya know what? i miss him. he made an admirable target and now even the good guys are bad.

  2. Great truck. It's on South Whidbey Island, one of the best little communities in the Pacific NW…in my opinion at least. It's progressive, liberal, responsible and they have lots of foresight about the land they live on. That truck is very South Whidbey – I love it!
