LOL. Yeah, he does.
Actually, I posted that picture because I often sense that a lot of people think the Sixties was all about cultural stuff like the Beatles, Peter Max and Timothy Leary, "free love" (now that's a good one - lol), etc. And while all those things were wonderful in their own little ways, in terms of change or in terms of influence on the way in which we live today, they really don't hold a candle to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Those statutes really made some huuuuuuuuuge changes in the way we operate. ;-)
