Obama-Drama, how true. Every time I think that Bill Ayers is a respected professor of education in this country when he should be sitting in a prison cell, I become more and more discouraged about the future of our country. I, too, lived through the 60's and started college in 1966. The hippie movement was such a waste of young minds and lives. Somehow, I managed to not get sucked into it, but I lost many friends along the way. Today, I deal with the aftermath with their children and grandchildren as I counsel in a college counseling center.
