Sounds about right. Jack Kerouac meets Maynard G. Krebs, Simon and
Garfunkel performing with short hair, black suits and ties, that sort
This is all really before my time, I confess, but I do have early
memories of hippies (and even Yippies) in various pop-culture media,
such as comic strips, depicted as being largely indistinguishable from

being unable to distinguish between the Bee Gees and the Sex Pistols,
but when has actual familiarity ever been a prerequisite for judgement?
