    PBS American Experience video: Earth Days

    I caught most of this the other night; http://video.pbs.org/video/1463378089/

    It was an excellent documentary of the beginning of the environmental movement, well worth watching. We take a lot of the ideas and programs in place now for granted, but they were pretty radical at the time.

    Yes. We were called hippies. Is just took everyone else 40 years to catch up. Vindication is sweet, late but still sweet.
