It's now August of 1974 and I'm hitchhiking with my friend, Breeze, to visit his uncle who moved to Montreal to avoid the draft. As we cross the border from upstate New York to Canada, Breeze and I hear big news on the radio of great importance to our hippie brothers and sisters. What's the news?
Robert Kennedy has been shot.
The Beatles have broken up.
Jimi Hendrix has died.
President Nixon has resigned.
A few more years have passed and it's August 16, 1977. Fewer and fewer hippies are hitchhiking around, and I'm on my last trip, hitchhiking back home to New Orleans.
