More of a hippie baby. Born in San Francisco in 1967 to a young lady who put me up for adoption and went to theater school, and a nice military couple got me and took me to the South. I went back to SF with my birth mom a couple of summers ago–hadn’t been since I left there the first time–and I go back and forth as to whether SF or Charleston SC is the most beautiful city in the US. It’s a nice place to say you’re from, and a good story.
Maybe you hippie types would like this. I went to LA for a visit in July–to see my birth mom–and we hit the Petersen’s Automotive Museum, and their special exhibition was on Rat Fink, the illustrator/cartoonist/car modifier. Here’s a little sample:
You know, some of his stuff–his bumper sticker collection was on display, was very antiwar. It was really interesting. I have to say sometimes I wonder if we had honest to god hippies today, would we be in the middle of this thing? I don’t know.
