Damn hippies

I have one oddly related Fugs story from that period. I was in the 7th grade in 1968 and a friend of mine, Doug, who was like the first hippie in our class (a 7th grade hippie if you can imagine) actually brought a Fugs album to class one day. It came with this flipbook where you flipped the pages and the Fugs stripped off their clothes until they were completely naked all the way down to their pubic hairs. Which was pretty shocking back in 1968. Well, when our teacher Mr Pitz got a load of that Fugs album poor Doug ended up getting suspended for 2 weeks. Doug would go down in the history of our class as the first — but by no means the last — casualty of that great cultural war that was “the ’60s.” Later that summer Doug would be the only one from our class to go to Woodstock. Shortly after he dropped out of school never to be seen again. Always wonder what happened to ole’ Doug . . . But yeah, I can relate personally to the issues being discussed on the Buckley show.

  1. It’s hard to tell whether Kerouac is being sarcastic, or crazy drunk, or just plain crazy. Possibly all of the above, plus he was plagued with physical illness.
