orchids (don’t read this post)

are you old enough to remember abby hoffman’s book, “steal this book”?


i was a senior in high school when it was published; all of us (my circle of friends) thought it was the cleverest of clever titles. did any of us read it?


if anyone did, they never mentioned it, but “steal this _____” became a mantra for all that was changing in our world at the time.

    I always admired the Yippies. Just read that the movement still exists (weird, huh?), but that their sole agenda seems to be marijuana legalization. I’m not opposed per se, just a bit sad to acknowledge the decline in grander ideals. Sigh.
