A comment by M*A on Flower Thrower
I'm old enough to have gone...actually had a chance to and didn't. One of the better decisions of my life. I can't tell you how ashamed I am of my generation...and how I very often feel the desire to apologize to all of you who come after. The 60's that these people venerate...is a myth and a lie. For all the talk of love and peace ....what I remember most is a lot of people using each other...for whatever they could. Sex, dope, money. The whole war protest movement....what they neglect to mention when they are waxing poetic over it...is that as soon as the draft was stopped...so did the protests. The fact that all those innocent people they were crying over were now being slaughtered...yawn....the draft was over.
