Re: “Cutting thinning HAIR:
A new conspiracy theory about an old rock musical

Oh, please, Byron, you protest too much. HAIR was first staged in Oct. 1967, just after the Summer of Love, in the middle of the Vietnam War, but well before the major anti-war protests, and before the killings of Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. The counter culture was just picking up steam. The war would last another eight years, kill 50,000 young Amercians and countless Vietnamese and Cambodians. I know you're too young Byron to understand how radical HAIR was at the time--but maybe next time you'll do a little research and talk to people who were actually there. In light of the fact that we have been contintually at war in one way or another since then, and currently have three wars raging, your confidence that the good guys won is at best naive. In fact, I find your glib critique itself a kind of neo-conservative snuff job to the anti-war message of the play.
