3. When I was 20, the old folks were the only ones I felt comfortable

talking to. People my parents' generation were too busy shooting everything down to get me to put my nose to their grindstone and people my own age were lost in movies, dating, and various fashions. Well, until I discovered the drug soaked hippies who were just as literate as I was.

I think that's because the old folks weren't needed for grindstone nosing any more and could indulge in the same sort of speculative thinking a kid with a lot of book learnin' and no life experience did.
