In another thread MB posted a reply that set me thinking. His post read: Let's dwell just on the 1960's and what was better then. Let me mention one area where it was much better. That was the country was still taking care of the mentally ill in state run hospitals. I am referring here to the severely mentally ill. Under the Reagan administration funds were cut and these folk were, IMHO, dumped on the the streets. This is when we began to see homeless folk wandering the streets, living under bridges, etc. What are your memories or ideas on what was better, beside the music, in the 19601's?
