Madison's Cultural Arrested Development

I was on the UW-Madison campus last week with a liberal friend of mine, and we passed a group of college-aged hippies. After bragging that he would be willing to stack his liberal credentials up against anyone's, my friend said:

"Dressing up as a hippie in 2007 is as ridiculous as showing up in 1967 dressed as a '20's-era flapper. It's just a costume - you're playing a part."
