Has Brattleboro grown up from long ago? Or is she really stuck in the sixties?

hippie isn't an era but a mindset
Bratt isn't a 'she', it's an it
Neil Young-'Hippie Dream'
Neil's 'Big Time'
The national Rainbow Gathering was held in Vermont back in 1991 and was great until July 5th when it rained, this years Rainbow fest was in Montana https://www.facebook.com/events/4663957267696...

Most of the real hippies are gone now. Those that are left have creaky joints and are finding it harder and harder to protest...

When crossing the bridge from NH to VT, there's an old guy with an "Unsafe Bridge" sign.
On the island between the states, people step over the guard rail and make way to their summer "camps".
There's a guy walking back & forth in front of the Post Office with a sign and he won't let you read his scribblings.
When leaving Price Chopper, people begging with signs block your view.
It is true that I no longer see Wal-Mart shopping carts ditched alongside the Brattleboro Roads.(They are now Price Chopper).
I get approached in the Hannaford parking lot by persons that have "No Gas Money".
Not to mention the Jaywalkers (Texting) and can't figure out why pedestrians get hit.

no the occasional begger doesn't 'block your view'
as for stevie the one who goes postal every weekday, it's not about the post office but the fed scum upstairs there
Unlike mikey, stevie is actually still allowed to drive
those aren't scriblings, it's his enemies list, and you DON'T want to be on it!
BTW, wtf does any of this have to do with hippies?

He probably means that they are burned out hippies.
