         No, Tom. This guy is about 6'1", bald up 
front, ponytail out back. He lives in Washington 
(PA), my hometown. I'd put him about ten years my 
senior, or 67. Probably went to 'Nam in the '60s. 
Definitely an aging hippie, though, without 
question. When confronted with proof on why 
socialism is a failure, he refuses to acknowledge 
or even address the failures.
