Read in January, 1975

"Either you're on the bus or you're off the bus." How many times did I hear someone say that in the sixties? Oh, I don't know...maybe a MILLION? While the rest of the world was tie-dyeing their t-shirts and taking whatever substance showed up on the street, Tom Wolfe was taking notes. You want to know what your mom and dad were really up to? Here it is. Oh, sure, most people didn't go as far as Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters did, but... well, never mind.
