It's always struck me a little strange, the way Fox "News" talks about "hippies" as if they are still around.

I mean, it is not that far from half a century ago when the word "hippie" described any actual group of people in American society. I live in Berkeley, and the last time I was on Telegraph Avenue, there were street merchants selling tie-dye tee young, liberal college kids who had crew cuts. They regarded the tee shirts with the same detached curiosity that the hippies regarded their grandmothers' 1920s-era flapper outfits - interesting relics from another era.
