Effin', Dirty, Hippies

It must be set the calendar back to 1968 weekend in the big newspapers.

First the LATimes highlights a french 'intellectual', and then WaPo has a lengthy (epic even) article on a bunch of dirty ass effin' commune living hippies.



Get a load of this

The commune incorporated as a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 in 1991, Fawn says. The Zendik Farm Arts Foundation's most recent IRS filings -- which list Fawn as president and Arol as director -- show that the commune raised $403,236 in revenues but operated at a loss.

Its mortgage runs about $4,000 a month. Fawn estimates that expenses, such as groceries, run $1,500 a week. To save, they shop at a Wal-Mart 41 miles away in Lewisburg.

First, they didn't get the memo that Wal-Mart is evil, second, the mentioned expenditures amount to around $120k a year. What kind of weed are they smoking to account for the operating loss? And the commune's 'green' vehicle of choice, a Lincoln Town Car, naturally.

Too bad there weren't any sit-ins at Universities to cover, then they could have hit the 60s nostalgia trifecta.

(NYTimes has talk of a 'revolution', close but not quite)
