Classic Hippies

I caught these two guys at the San Diego Earth Day celebrations at Balboa Park on Sunday. They've got everything but the tie-die shirts. Long hair, necklaces and an air of carefree innocence. I'm sure they're full-on eco-fascists trying to take away freedoms left and right, but looking at them, I couldn't feel anything towards them but brotherly love.

Bless you boys and the VW Microbus you rode in on.

I would like to point out that of the people I know personally who look like elderly hippies, no more than about half are actually classic full-on commune-type hippies. The other half are hard-core libertarians. You can't tell them apart just by looking, you have to talk to them for a couple of minutes. *Then* you can tell.

Yeah, in my world, these could have been scientists. As we were at Earth Day, however, the Probability of Hippieosity, P-sub-H, was quite high.
