In the Crosshairs- No Intelligence in the House

I was just a kid in the sixties, never passed age 11. I do remember watching the news and seeing the war demonstrations, the protests the hairy people with ragged clothing. I never really grasped the concept of what they were doing and why. I think that in my pre-teen TV saturated brain, I never figured that this was going to be more than just a fad. It seemed like a great way for kids to get together and meet other kids. The one thing that never occurred to me back then was the possibility that these young people who vehemently got in the face of the establishment would actually one day, bring their socialist pacifism into the establishment. I have to wonder now, if maybe Nancy and Harry marched in any of the same campus demonstrations together in the sixties. It does scare the crud out of me that both houses of congress are now being led by and much of our national security lies in the hands of aging hippies.
