29. "Hippies"
I grew up in the 60's in a very conservative, redneck town in Texas. I remember the dinner table discussions always centered around the war in Viet Nam and the "hippies".

My father was a pretty progressive dude for his era. He thought the war was ridiculous and openly worried about the young men being killed because of it. But he didn't understand young men wanting to grown their hair long. He didn't understand the "love ins" or the peace marches.

As I grew up, I realized that I had a whole lot more in common with the hippies than the rednecks!
