I cannot remember past battles. Perhaps I sustained a head injury in the scuffle. I think I remember some positive comments as well though in the past.
I love that username, as I feel it fits me. I guy my age once said "hippies ruled in the 70s even in the small towns".
Perhaps especially in the small towns as the 60s did not get to the midwest until the 70s and those were my formative years. The other day I saw a yearbook from 1983 and even then the hair was worn long.
Most positive comments make DU a better place. I need to try to remember that in the future.
