BBC hippie star
This afternoon I took part in a live discussion on the TV and radio sections of the BBC World Service, about "baby boomers" (awful American concept anyway) and hippies etc. I told them this profound truth, a propos of some people who insist on thinking of the generation who were in their twenties in the sixties as selfish: that a search in Google for "hippies" and "selfish" yields about 200 000 hits; but "hippies" and "sell fish" gives more than a quarter of a million, and I think that settles it once and for all. They seemed deeply impressed, though edited it out of the second, half-length transmission... and my joke about Clinton's saxophone...
But if you have been, thanks for reading/listening/watching.
