Last night I watched the American Experience about the "Summer of Love" in 1967. Every time I watch TV programs about the '60s I'm amazed that all that stuff actually happened. I used to think it was silly--people dressed in tie-dyed shirts, taking acid, living in communes-- but now I don't think it was silly at all. Idealistic, maybe, but not frivolous. People really thought they were going to start a revolution. And they did, in a way. Supposedly PBS is going to make the entire program available to watch online soon.
