This is a great relief because I would hate to be responsbile for destroying a perfectly respectable suburban neighborhood with my free-spirit.

While old-growth hippies were a gentle species that was considered a mild annoyance at worst, the new breed, they say, is a hardier, more insidious creature which seems to thrive in virtually any environment.

My husband and I are working on destroying our perfectly nice neighborhood in Maine, but then again, there are lots of hippies in these parts too.
Gotta love the Onion!
