Those were days.

There was a saying in my youth: Turn on, tune in, drop out. We can thank Timothy Leary for that. He intoned it to a crowd of hippies in San Francisco in 1967. (He borrowed it from Marshal McLuhan.) Regardless, I am close to giving myself up to the sentiment. To comment beyond that is to swim against the stream in which I wish to be swept away.
